Meltem's Journey: A Refugee Diary
This fourth book in the Refugee Diary series follows a Kurdish family from Eastern Turkey. 13 year old Meltem tells the story of their journey to the UK, and the harrowing months waiting to find out if they can stay in Britain. Meltem encounters racism, her father goes missing and the family is sent to Yarl's Wood detention centre. But the end of the story is full of hope for the future, as the family is at last given permission to stay in the UK and Meltem starts a new school and makes friends.
A powerful addition to the acclaimed Refugee Diaries series. Other titles in the series include: Gervelie's Journey, Mohammed's Journey, Hamzat's Journey.
