Close to the Wind by Jon Walter
  

The Lovereading4Kids comment

A timeless and haunting story of a boy and his grandfather fleeing a war-torn country. Original and yet eminiscent of Anne Holm and Sonya Hartnett, Close to the Wind is a powerful and moving novel with greed, love, trust at its heart and what matters most when your world falls apart.
