4u2read - Nadine Dreams of Home

Paperback

A homesick girl yearns for her old life in Africa. A touching yet serious story with an ultimately uplifting ending. Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 7+

A touching yet serious story with an ultimately uplifting ending. Nadine doesn't like her new life. She doesn't speak the language, she can't understand what's going on, and more than anything, it's just not home. Especially since her father isn't here with them in the UK. But it just wasn't safe in Goma anymore, not with the uprising and the violence of the rebel soldiers. So Nadine tries to find something in her new life that will remind her of the happy memories of Africa. Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 7+
