Nadine Dreams of Home

Nadine and her family find Britain really scary. Britain is not their home. Nadine can't speak English and she has no friends. Her family have fled from the terror of war in their native Goma, and they had to leave her father behind. They don't know if he is alive or dead.

Nadine can't make much sense of school, but she is happy when her teacher finds a picture of Goma on the computer. Nadine remembers all the good times she had in Africa. She dreams of how happy she could be again.

Then, one night, someone comes banging on her front door…

An ultimately uplifting story aimed at new or dyslexic readers.
