Please come along to our next book club, where we will be discussing middle-grade novel, ‘The Boy at the Back of the Class’ by Onjali Q. Rauf.

Winner of the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize 2019, it tells the story of Ahmet, a new boy in class, who is a refugee separated from his family. When the grown-ups seem unable to help him, his new friends come up with a daring plan.

It has been described as a modern classic, so examining it is a must for all middle-grade writers! Whether an MG writer or not, please join us in the discussion.

We will be meeting in the basement cafe of Waterstones Piccadilly, London, at 7pm on Tuesday 11th June.

The book is widely available to buy, or you can find it here:
