Review from Toppsta

“From the moment you start reading this story, you will be hooked. The family dynamic, the grief, the struggles with the community, friendship, there is so much packed into this book. Soraya has the weight of the world on her shoulders. She is the go between in her family and desperate to be accepted by her friends while trying to please her extremely strict father who struggles to show his love for his family. There were so many questions left unanswered in this story that I hope there will be more from Patrice Lawrence. I would recommend this to children aged 11+.” – Read by an adult
