Run! by Farrukh DhondyWhen Rashid Rashid's grandfather dies he leaves behind him his grandson with a major problem. Rashid does not exist in the eyes of the British Government. He has no passport and no legal argument to stay in Britain. His mother has gone to work abroad and he doesn't know where his father is. Rashid has no choice but to go on the run. Rashid's journey takes him through a complex and complicated society. A world with good people, and bad, and it is not always obvious which are which. A society full of conflict and concerns and people trying to make sense of the lives they live. In short, Rashid takes a journey across contemporary Britain and has some interesting conclusions to make by the end of his journey about the nature of good and bad, urban and rural, belonging and not belonging.
's adventures take him the length and breadth of the country; in Devon he picks up his first real clue to the whereabouts of his grandfather, while in Scotland he lands a job protecting a local farmer's crops from sabotage. Yet he retains his sang-froid and his droll sense of humour throughout, adapting to his constantly changing circumstances while never losing sight of his ultimate aim - to find his grandfather. This is a powerfully compelling novel about one young boy's fight to find the truth about his past and escape the clutches of the establishment; an exhilarating story in which survival depends on quick wits rather than brute force.
