Shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal 2014
One city: two communities divided by a wall and armed soldiers. What is on the other side? Berlin, Belfast, Israel: a book to make you fear and think. Joshua lives with his mother and stepfather in a divided city. A great wall patrolled by soldiers separates its two communities. Only the rubble-strewn debris of their broken world gives hints of an old life before the wall. One day Joshua finds a tunnel which leads in pitch darkness under the wall and across to the other side. Forbidden territory: a violent place which a boy like him – visibly different – should never stray into. A girl’s act of kindness saves his life. But how can Joshua ever make up for the terrible crime that results?
Lexiles are the global standard in reading assessment. They are unique as
they are able to measure a child and a book on the same scale – ensuring
the right book gets to the right child at the right time.
