Product description

Powerful, compassionate and ultimately hopeful. Observer

WINNER OF THE COSTA CHILDREN’S BOOK AWARD 2021 and the Sunday Times Children’s Book of the Week – a trailblazing novel about two teenagers from opposite worlds; The Crossing is a profound story of hope, grief, and the very real tragedies of the refugee crisis.

The sea carries our pain. The stars carry our future.

Natalie’s world is falling apart. She’s just lost her mum and her brother marches the streets of Dover full of hate and anger. Swimming is her only refuge.

Sammy has fled his home and family in Eritrea for the chance of a new life in Europe. Every step he takes on his journey is a step into an unknown and unwelcoming future.

A twist of fate brings them together and gives them both hope. But is hope enough to mend a broken world?

‘Skilful, involving and important, this deserves it’s accolades’ The Sunday Times ‘Powerful, uplifting, hopeful’ Guardian
