Close to the Wind

Close to the Wind - Book cover
  • Vibe: A war torn country… a town that is burning. A single ship waits at the port for those who can escape. How can a boy and his grandfather hope to get on board? And will they find his mother before it leaves?

There’s a ship down at the dock.

There are places for a few, but not many.

If you have enough money and know the right people, you might get a ticket.

Or you might not.

When Papa meets two old friends, he makes a deal that could save them all. But this is only the beginning of the journey for Malik. If he is to escape, he will need all of his courage, his sense of right and wrong and a magic trick that he must practise until it’s perfect.
