The Ones That Disappeared

by Zana Fraillon - £7.99  Hachette Children's Group (2017)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781510101586 | ISBN 10: 1510101586

Beautiful, magical and moving, this is a Skellig for a new generation, from the author of The Bone Sparrow, shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal 2017 and the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize 2016.
 
Some stories need to be told... A moving, beautifully-written and poignant novel about child trafficking and the search for freedom.
 
Kept by a ruthless gang, three children manage to escape from slavery. But freedom isn't just waiting on the outside.
 
Separated, scared and looking after a small child, Esra will do whatever she can to reunite with her friend Miran, who was captured by the police - the police who she mustn't trust.
 
Hiding in the shadows of the forest, Esra is found by a local boy, a boy with his own story. Together they will create a man out of mud. A man who will come to life and lead them through a dark labyrinth of tunnels until they finally have the courage the step above ground. Until they finally have the courage to speak their story. Until they finally have the courage to be free.
