Two Mongolian brothers start at Julie‘s primary school in Bootle, and appoint her their ‘good guide‘ to help them blend in. Julie‘s understanding of the world expands massively, but neither she nor her mother understand what the boys‘ family are so scared of. Funny, sweet and sad, without ever being preachy.

Great on audio, but I missed out on the polaroid photos, which are quite central to the story.

RachelO Hi @BookwormAHN - I think we‘ve been partnered for this challenge 😊. How‘s it going? I‘m still in the very early stages - a few picture books and this is my first middle grade. It‘ll definitely be a year-long one for me! 5mo
LibrarianRyan 😁👍🏻❤️. I will say that cover is kind of freaky. 5mo
BookwormAHN This will definitely be year long for me. I've also done a few picture books and I'm reading a middle grade now for #Booked2019 that I plan to work into this challenge as well. 5mo
BookwormAHN I'll tag you when I finish it. It's 5mo

Audio version. A story about unlikely friendships, discovering different cultures and immigration in the UK. The story was inspired by an actual event. Big thumbs up.
