Product description

Tash believes she can fly. She believes she can touch the sky. Which is how one girl, one boy and two yaks start an epic journey across the Himalayas… In Tibet, just two words can land you straight in jail: Dalai Lama. (You know: the great Buddhist spiritual leader.) The Tibetan government really doesn’t like him. Or photos of him. Or any mention of him. So Tash has to follow lots of rules to survive in her country, which is occupied by Chinese soldiers. But when a man sets himself on fire in protest – and soldiers seize Tash’s parents – she and her best buddy Sam are forced to break the rules. Who can help them? Maybe the Dalai Lama himself. Teensy problem: he’s in India. But where there’s a will (and two yaks), there’s a way. Which is how Tash and Sam set off on an epic journey across the world’s highest mountains…

  • A thrilling tale of adventure, survival, hope and courage
  • Sweeps you from occupied Tibet to the Himalayan mountains
  • The unforgettable story of a girl’s quest to save her parents
  • A richly descriptive, moving novel with a humanitarian core
