Refugee Boy

Refugee Boy by Benjamin Zephaniah

Alem comes from Ethiopia. He also comes from Eritrea. Unfortunately, there is a war going on between them. Alem and his father flee, but Alem thinks it's only a holiday, until his father leaves him in England...

This is my book club book, recommended to me by my form tutor. I thought that it was very well written and I really liked the story line. I also thought it was very good for a current affair, the migrant crisis. It was really well written and I don't think that it could have been any better.

I think that this is book that is worth a 11/10 but as that is not possible, I have to give it a 10
I think that the age rating is 10+
