This is a wonderfully evocative piece of writing that is both an incredibly emotional read but also an uplifting one to anyone who has ever experienced bullying or torment. Danni is a boy with a new life, in a new country – it should be exciting but he’s bullied at school and when he’s not at school the nightmares are getting ever more powerful, until that is a sad event sparks a magical moment that changes his life for the better.


Night Flight by Michaela Morgan

A new life should be exciting - but for Danni, it's a battle. He and his 'Aunty' live in a tower block, with only distant memories of his faraway home. His new language is proving difficult, he gets bullied by the other children, and he has nightmares.

One day when his school visits a city farm, Danni meets a grey horse called Moonlight and his heart starts to heal. But the nightmares are closing in - until a sad event sparks a magical night that will transform Danni's life for ever.
