Review

Befriended by a brave and loyal stray dog, Shadow, Aman and his mother survive a treacherous trip across war-ravaged Afghanistan. But now they are in danger again - can Shadow help them one more time?

This is a candid exploration of the injustices of war, at home and away, and an unflinching account of the treatment of asylum seekers. The book includes explanatory notes on the war in Afghanistan and the Yarl’s Wood immigration detention centre.
