Publisher Description

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. He never talks and never smiles and doesn't like sweets - not even lemon sherbets, which are my favourite!

But then I learned the truth: Ahmet really isn't very strange at all. He's a refugee who's run away from a War. A real one. 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. . .

The boy at the back of the class

The book is really good and I love it. I could listen to this everyday. My only issue is that it’s is tooooo long so I have to listen it in loads of parts. Other than that it is one of my favourite books in the whole entire world !!!!!!!

The Boy At The Back Of The Class

I love this audiobook so much. It's my absolute favourite. And it's only the first book of Onjali Q. Rauf. The way it's written with that adorable nine year old mind. I just love that the ,,Me-girls" name was mentioned only once(Alexa) so you had to listen extra carefully :D. And I adore the speakers voice. I usually don't like stories that "could" happen in real life but this one is different.
Anyways I hope you are encouraged to buy that incredible Audiobook.🤍
Definitely recommend
