Stay A Little Longer

Paperback

A powerful and immensely moving story of friendship, family and happiness, from an award-winning author well-known for his gritty realism for teens.

Aman's dad is gone, leaving her feeling lost and alone. She struggles to talk about it, but it's a fact and he isn't coming back. When a lovely man called Gurnam moves in to her street and saves Aman from some local bullies, he and Aman quickly become friends, perhaps even like family. But Gurnam has his own sadness. One that's far bigger than Aman can understand, and it's tearing his life apart.
