Product description

Review

"Hicyilmaz has a gift for conveying smells, sights and sounds, and the sense of loneliness and exclusion is overwhelming. A sensitive and conscience-stirring novel." (Lesley Agnew The Bookseller, 20 Dec 02)

"powerfully evoked" (Guardian, 6 May 03)

Haunting, evocative and at times difficult, Hicyilmaz brings huge consideration to her tough subject matter...and a passion for language and character to her story. She claims she writes "Like threading beads on a string", she's wrong. They're not beads, they're diamonds and pearls, each and every one of them. She is as much a master jeweller of words as she is an author. (Paul Blezard Oneword Radio, Sep 03)

"This is a beautifully written, powerful and very moving account of a girl's struggle to be true to herself and to her own dreams. It is also a refreshingly honest portrayal of the narrow-mindedness, racism and intolerance she experiences within her own family as well as from the wider community." (INIS: Children's Books Ireland, Autumn 03)

"¿a rare experience of literary craft and emotional intensity." (Books for Keeps)

"This exciting and well written work of teenage fiction conveys a vivid impression of the life of a young asylum seeker." (Liberator)

Book Description

A moving novel from a writer of distinction, picturing the world of Romanian gypsies and asylum-seekers
