    The brand new book by the Carnegie Medal shortlisted author of Run, Rebel.


    A trailblazing novel about two teenagers from opposite worlds; The Crossing is a heartbreaking and life-affirming story of hope, grief, and the very real tragedies of the refugee crisis.

    Natalie's world has turned upside down. She's lost her mum and her brother is descending further and further into anger and violence with a far-right gang who march the streets of Dover.

    Sammy has fled his home and family in Eritrea for the chance of a new life in Europe. Every step he takes is a step into the unknown - into a strange country and a hidden future.

    A twist of fate brings these two teens from opposite sides of the channel together, but will their journey end in hope or despair?

    Praise for Run, Rebel - a Guardian best book of 2020: A tightly crafted series of punchy, often heartbreaking narrative poems . . . Mann's brilliant, coruscating verse novel lays out the anatomy of Amber's revolution, and the tentative first flowerings of hope and change. Guardian
