An inspiring story of hope, friendship, and love amid war that will stay with readers long after they turn the final page - perfect for Deborah Ellis fans

Amina's homeland has been ravaged by war for many months, but so far they are safe, together. When a so-called liberating force arrives in the country, the family think their prayers for peace will soon be answered, but they are horribly wrong. The country is thrown into yet further turmoil and Amina's family is devastated. Her elder brother is accused of being a ringleader in a rebel group and goes into hiding. Her father is then killed for apparently protecting him. The women of the family - Amina, her two sisters, and their mother - have no choice but to leave their home town, along with thousands of others, and head for a refugee camp. But there are even more challenges ahead.
