Real-Life Stories series

These stories for younger teenagers are described as "real life": not only are they about real people, but they don't have neat endings. In Refugee Camp, we hear how Carbino was caught up as a small child in the Sudanese civil war.
From narrative, analysis, maps and grimly powerful photographs, we learn how he was shuffled from camp to camp as a "lost boy". But even when he is reunited with his family, the story is not over.
Other titles include Living as a Refugee, Street Child and Child Worker.
These are good, thoughtful books which are not satisfied with simple answers to complex issues
