Kids Book Club: The Boy at the Back of the Class

Kids Book Club: The Boy at the Back of the Class

with Aunty Anne

For young readers aged between 9 and 13, this book club will discuss the book The The Boy At the Back of the Class by Onjali Q. Rauf.

About the book:

Told with heart and humour, The Boy at the Back of the Class is a child's perspective on the refugee crisis, highlighting the importance of friendship and kindness in a world that doesn't always make sense. There used to be an empty chair at the back of my class, but now a new boy called Ahmet is sitting in it. He's nine years old (just like me), but he's very strange.

With bombs and fires and bullies that hurt people. And the more I find out about him, the more I want to help. That's where my best friends Josie, Michael and Tom come in.

Because you see, together we've come up with a plan…
