Summary

A British girl and a Syrian refugee find strength in each other to pursue their dreams for the future and overcome their present hardships.

Fourteen-year-old Stevie lives with her beloved vinyl collection, her mum...and her mum's depression. When Stevie's mum's disability benefits are cut, Stevie and her mother are plunged into a life of poverty.

But irrepressible Stevie is determined not to be beaten and she takes inspiration from the lyrics of her father's 1980s record collection and dreams of a life as a musician.

Then she meets Hafiz, a talented footballer and a Syrian refugee. Hafiz's parents gave their life savings to buy Hafiz a safe passage to Europe; his journey has been anything but easy. Then he meets Stevie...

As Stevie and Hafiz's friendship grows, they encourage each other to believe in themselves and follow their dreams.

Book of the week

Alternating stories works really well as the two stories blend together as the main characters develop an unlikely friendship. Very moving and the really short chapters make it easy to devour.
