The Ink Bridge


By: Neil Grant
Genre: Historical Cultural Drama
Location: FIC GRA

Set in Australia, with a young lad from Afghanistan called Omed who is asylum seeking, a candle factory, Hector- an Australian boy who has retreated into silence and festering secrets .... Sounds to me like a Bryce Courtney for teenagers. I read blurbs like this one on the back of these books and I am such a sucker for this genre- stories of broken people, sad people, foreigners, who collide and try and figure out how life works. .
As the front of the cover says
Two silent boys.
Two challenging journeys.
One remarkable story.
