There used to be an empty chair at the back of my class, but now a new boy called Ahmet is sitting in it.He's eight 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!But the t...ruth is, Ahmet really isn't very strange at all. He's a Refugee who's run away from a War. A real one. With bombs and fires and bullies that hurt people.
