The Boy at the Back of the Class

The Boy at the Back of the ClassT785283137
There used to be an empty chair at the back of the class, but now a new boy called Ahmet is sitting in it. He's nine years old (just like me), but he's very strange. He never talks and never smiles and doesn't like sweets - not even lemon sherbets, which are my favourite! After learning that he has fled his own war-torn country, Ahmet's classmates have "The Greatest Idea in the World" - a magnificent plan to reunite Ahmet with his family. An unexpected and often hilarious adventure follows, all topped off with a terrific twist.
