Told with heart and humour, The Boy at the Back of the Class is a child's perspective on the refugee crisis, highlighting the importance of friendship and kindness in a world that doesn't always make sense.


There used to be an empty chair at the back of my class, but now a new boy called Ahmet is sitting in it.


He's nine years old (just like me), but he's very strange. He never talks and never smiles and doesn't like sweets - not even lemon sherbets, which are my favourite!


But then I learned the truth: Ahmet really isn't very strange at all. He's a refugee who's run away from a War. A real one. With bombs and fires and bullies that hurt people. And the more I find out about him, the more I want to help.


That's where my best friends Josie, Michael and Tom come in. Because you see, together we've come up with a plan. . .


With beautiful illustrations by Pippa Curnick

Recensie(s)

Onjali Rauf's debut, The Boy at the Back of the Class (Orion), illustrated by Pippa Curnick, offers a child's eye view and an ambitious, adventure-filled plot. When a new boy is introduced at school, no one is exactly sure where he has come from; what is a refugee kid , anyway, and how can Ahmet be helped to feel that he belongs? Though the narrator's voice is overly young at times, this is a lovely, warm-hearted first novel, a celebration of courage and friendship leavened with mischief. * The Guardian * Raul's book is at once tearjerking and chuckle-inducing and will go a long way to restore faith in human nature. * Sunday Post *
