Madina and her family have fled war and unimaginable horror to seek asylum in Europe. Every day, she fills her diary with the truth about her new life – fitting into a new school, learning the language, her best friend Laura, and her own traumatic memories. But though this new country promises hope and security, Madina and her family struggle to find their way, facing deprivation and humiliation in their crowded accommodation and enduring an endless wait for settled status. With her anxious father growing ever more controlling, Madina is torn between two lives. Can she build a bridge between her past and her future?
