Gervelie’s Journey A Refugee Diary by Anthony Robinson and Annemarie Young

Gervelie’s Journey A Refugee Diary by Anthony Robinson and Annemarie YoungPublished when Gervelie was thirteen; this diary tells us about a young girl’s life in a war torn country, and the difficult if not traumatic decisions her parents made in order to keep her safe. We are exposed to the vacillating emotions of a young person who is relatively safe in Britain whilst worrying about her mother and step-sister in the Republic of Congo.

About booksfrommybookshelf

I am a passionate reader of children's books (Primary aged) with a particular interest in picture books. I am always on the look out for children's books at are written by authors from other countries. I am also keen on technology and try to keep abreast of what is happening in a fast changing world. At present my day job is to support teachers and local authorities in the Yorkshire and Humber region (UK), which I really enjoy. Another aspect of my work is to present nationally developed work for the National Strategies. With economic cuts my job will terminate in Spring next year and I may be carrying out independent work based around high quality picture books. My other interest include my allotment, knitting and last but not least my family. My Twitter name is Orlama.
