Textul de pe ultima copertă

Innocent until proven guilty?
Not here, you're not.


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.'
One of her greatest achievements is to make the frightening monotony of the two years he suffers so full of suspense.
An excellent novel . . . superb
Extremely powerful, and the descriptions of torture are genuinely harrowing.
Timely, gritty fiction.
Could it happen? It has happened. That's why teenagers should read this book.
Rising star: Anna Perera. Her novel highlights the teenagers sent to the camp as it tugs readers into its vivid nightmare journey.
