By Bancks, Tristan
Sima and her family are pressed to the rough, cold ground among about fifty others. They lie next to the tall detention centre fence, designed to keep them in. The wires are cut one by one. When they make their move to escape, a guard is alerted and raises the alarm. There's shou...ting, smoke bombs, people tackled to the ground. In the chaos Sima is separated from her parents and baby sister. Dad told her to run no matter what, so she does, hiding in a local school. But when the school goes into lockdown, Sima's stuck. And a boy, Dan, finds her hiding in the toilet block. What does Dan do? Help her? Dob her in? She's breaking the law, but is it right to lock kids up? And if he offers to help, should Sima trust him? Or run? One moment, one decision, will change the course of their lives.Read more
