A@S: A Boy is Not a Ghost
September 22 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am
A Boy is Not a Ghost by Edeet Ravel
Middle-Grade Fiction, Ages 9 – 12
A sequel to the award-winning A Boy Is Not a Bird, about a boy exiled to Siberia during World War II. Based on a true story.
Ripped from his home, with his father imprisoned in a Siberian gulag, twelve-year-old Natt finds himself stranded with other deportees in a schoolyard in Novosibirsk after two gruelling months spent being transported on a bug-infested livestock train. When his mother is falsely arrested for a petty crime, Natt must learn how to live the uncertain life of an exile. Practice being invisible as a ghost, change your name and identity if you have to, watch out for spies, and never draw the attention of the authorities.
