Sunday Times Children's Book Of The Week

Guantanamo Boy by Anna Perera

Readers will be wrung out afterwards, but will appreciate the small comforts and kindnesses of normal life that Khalid vividly remembers in the midst of the horror. This powerful and humane book shows that hatred is never an answer, and proves the pointlessness of torture and the danger of thinking of anyone as 'other'. NICOLETTE JONES

was reviewed by Amanda Craig in The Times yesterday as well, but I can't locate the url for that yet
