An inspiring story of a young asylum seeker’s struggle to build a new life with his family in Britain told with wit and heart from Catherine MacPhail.

At last, Omar’s family are safe and have somewhere to live. But life in a new country isn’t easy and life on the estate is proving even harder thanks to Sam. Sam’s always there – in Omar’s tower block, in his class, and in his face. He wants to push Omar around, but Omar’s not giving up on his new life and he’s ready to push back. A beautifully repackaged edition of this pertinant and multi-layered tale of resilience in the face of prejudice.
