Deadly Letter

Publisher: Barrington Stoke

It's tough starting school. It's tougher when you've moved from your warm, colourful home in India to rainy south London. And when your name is Prity, life is really problematic. Worst of all is playtime, as Prity doesn't understand the unfamiliar games, especially Deadly Letter. Prity knows she will have to find a way to fit in, all by herself.

Just as she is starting to feel at home, her dad gets a job in Coventry and the family has to move. But now Prity can introduce a new group of children to Deadly Letter, and make friends straight away.

A warm, reassuring story about moving house and making new friends, which touches on racism and teasing, but shows the benefit of a positive, friendly attitude.
