A young Eritrean refugee finding it hard to adjust to her precarious new life in the UK finds comfort in a diary she finds hidden in an old hat box written by a girl the same age as her over 100 years ago.
When Samira discovers a diary written by Hen, a girl living over 100 years ago, she finds the friend she has been desperately seeking.
A friend who brings not just comfort, but inspiration to be brave, to fight for her place in the world, and maybe even to uncover the secrets of her own past.
