The Lovereading4Kids comment
Shortlisted for the 2015 UKLA Book Awards 12-16 years Amina’s family is forced to
flee as refuges from an obsessive regime. Even in a harsh refugee camp, Amina and her
sister Jenna’s situation is enhanced by the power of the imagination and storytelling.
Though Looking at the Stars certainly doesn’t avoid any depictions of the harshness of life for people in conflict zones, this beautifully written book leaves with a feeling of hope.
Looking at the Stars by Jo Cotterill
Amina's homeland has been ravaged by war for many months, but so far she and her family 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...Through it all, Amina has her imagination to fall back on - of a better place and time. But can her stories get her through this?
Beautifully told in simple but elegant prose and it's a truthful story. It doesn't duck the truth of the terrible situations endured by refugees around the world but it doesn't leave you feeling that everything is hopeless. That's what imagination does, you see. Bookbag
