Synopsis

Azzi in Between by Sarah Garland

Azzi and her parents are in danger. They have to leave their home and escape to another country on a frightening journey by car and boat. In the new country they must learn to speak a new language, find a new home and Azzi must start a new school. With a kind helper at the school, Azzi begins to learn English and understand that she is not the only one who has had to flee her home. She makes a new friend, and with courage and resourcefulness, begins to adapt to her new life. But Grandma has been left behind and Azzi misses her more than anything. Will Azzi ever see her grandma again?

Reviews

Wonderful. A masterpiece. -- Kate Kellaway Observer

A tour de force ... full of warmth and love. Books for Keeps

A small miracle of compassionate storytelling. The Times

Sarah Garland tenderly creates a story of hope from the troubled experience of immigration in this warm-hearted picture book. -- Julia Eccleshare Guardian

It is unusual to come across a picture book that one feels so strongly about that one wants everyone - whatever their age - to read it... Garland treats her subject with unpatronising, well-informed sensitivity. -- Kate Kellaway Observer

a very powerful story Juno

An attractively produced book that succeeds in explaining some of the difficulties faced by an immigrant child adjusting to the culture of a host country. School Librarian

Her sensitive handling of it masks the weight and significance of the subject which Garland is introducing to her young readers. The Independent on Sunday
