about

A hard-hitting, intensely moving novel about child slavery in the Middle East, from the Carnegie-shortlisted author of CRUSADE.Taken from their home in Pakistan to work in the Persian Gulf, eight-year-old Rashid and his little brother Shari cling to each other. Then they are separated and forced to become jockeys in the lucrative camel-racing business. Rashid is starved and worked to exhaustion by harsh supervisors - but he has a talent for racing and quickly becomes his stable's star jockey. Soon he begins to forget what life was like when he had a proper home. He almost begins to forget about Shari . . .
Elizabeth Laird has been nominated five times for the Carnegie Medal and has won many awards, including the Children's Book Award. She and her husband divide their time between London and Edinburgh.
