              Sima and her family are pressed to the rough, cold ground among about fifty others. They lie next to the tall detention centre fence, designed to keep them in. The wires are cut one by one. When they make their move to escape, a guard is alerted and raises the alarm. There's shou...ting, smoke bombs, people tackled to the ground. In the chaos Sima is separated from her parents and baby sister. Dad told her to run no matter what, so she does, hiding in a local school. But when the school goes into lockdown, Sima's stuck. And a boy, Dan, finds her hiding in the toilet block. What does Dan do? Help her? Dob her in? She's breaking the law, but is it right to lock kids up? And if he offers to help, should Sima trust him? Or run? One moment, one decision, will change the course of their lives.

              I was not aware that I was crying until I saw the tears hit my shoes. Even with all the lights at the airport, the night outside looked dark and the air seemed thick. I wiped my eyes and tried to figure out what I could do. I was alone in a foreign land at the age of nine, and I ...did not speak the language. I was, quite simply, terrified...

              Twelve-year-old Sadako Sasaki was the lively star of her school s running team when the dizzy spells started. Soon gravely ill with leukaemia, an after-effect of the atom bomb that fell on her city when she was two years old, Sadako approached her illness as she did her running w...ith irrepressible spirit. Recalling a Japanese legend, Sadako set to work folding paper cranes. For the legend holds that if a sick person folds on thousand cranes, the gods will grand her wish and make her healthy again. Since its publication in 1977, this story of Sadako s spirit and bravery has become a modern classic and has been published to high acclaim all over the world. This is an extraordinary book, one no reader will fail to find compelling and unforgettable. Booklist (USA)
