About the book

Under the grey Glasgow skies, twelve-year-old refugee Reema is struggling to find her place in a new country, with a new language and without her brother. But she isn't the only one feeling lost. Her Glaswegian neighbour Caylin is lonely and lashing out. When they discover an injured fox and her cubs hiding on their estate, the girls form a wary friendship. Heartfelt and full of hope this an uplifting story about the power of friendship and belonging. Inspired by her work with young asylum seekers, Victoria Williamson's stunning story of displacement and discovery will speak to anyone who has ever asked 'where do I belong?'
