The Lovereading4Kids comment

The complexities of making choices in a world rich in different values, expectations and beliefs is cleverly explored in this hugely topical story. After the death of his father in a random violent attack, Hamish sheds the tolerant views he had been brought up with and slips into being alienated and negative, adopting the prejudiced and racist views he has previously despised. But Hamish changes again when he has to help Ali, the sole survivor among a group of North African refugees whose boat founders on the French coast. Powerfully written and thought provoking, this is a powerful read.

Synopsis

Red Moon by Rachel Anderson

Hamish is sensible, conscientious, and respectable, friends with the good boys, stays away from the bad ones. When his father is murdered in an act of random violence, Hamish's world turns upside down. Angry and alienated, Hamish begins to lose his tolerant beliefs and is drawn towards racist reactions.
