PAPERBACK
Category: Childrens 9 plus
Synopsis
Mehmet does not understand why his family wants to leave their beautiful, blossom-filled village to move to the city. Their new home on the hills around Ankara is in the shanty-town, and there Mehmet must learn different ways of surviving life on the streets - fast. He makes new friends, like Muhlis, who deals in scrap, and rediscovers his boyhood companion Hayri, now starving and desperate. Through their eyes, Mehmet begins to recognise the trap that poverty has sprung around them - and he forges plans to escape to a better life. An enthralling and unforgettable story about poverty and injustice, from award-winning novelist Gaye Hiçyilmaz.
