Reviews

An extraordinary man - achieving against all odds -- Jon Snow * Twitter *
Riveting * The Bookseller *
[A] powerful account of a year-long journey to Britain... As a call for Europe and Britain to do more for the world's refugees, the book is as powerful as that harrowing picture of the dead toddler on the beach. * The Times *
This is a harrowing but necessary must-read about an exceptional young man. * Stylist *
The Lightless Sky is a heart-rending read that illuminates the plight of unaccompanied minors forced to leave their homes and loved ones. [Passarlay's] fierce intelligence is apparent throughout... His powerful account is a testament to the courage of all those fleeing conflict in search of safety. * The Independent on Sunday *
Beautifully written... It should be required reading in British schools. * The Big Issue *
A Book of the Year * New Statesman *
A story which moved me to tears more than once * Women Together *
