Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

The brand new book by the Carnegie Medal shortlisted author of Run, Rebel.

Winner of the Costa Children's Book Award 2021 - a trailblazing novel about two teenagers from opposite worlds; The Crossing is a profound story of hope, grief, and the very real tragedies of the refugee crisis. 

Natalie's world has turned upside down. She's lost her mum, and her brother is descending further and further into anger and violence with a far-right gang who march the streets of Dover.

Sammy has fled his home and family in Eritrea for the chance of a new life in Europe. Every step he takes is a step into the unknown - into a strange country and a hidden future.

A twist of fate brings these two teens from opposite sides of the channel together, but will their journey end in hope or despair?

Absolutely beautifully written

Manjeet Man is an exceptional author, her sensitivity, understanding, empathy for her young characters is overwhelming. The structure of the story is poetic and brings the reader closer to the characters.
