Shif is just an ordinary boy who likes chess, maths and racing his best friend

home from school. But one day, soldiers with guns come to his door -

and he knows that he is no longer safe.

Shif is forced to leave his mother and little sister, and embark 

on a dangerous journey; a journey through imprisonment and escape,

new lands and strange voices and a perilous crossing by land and sea.

He will encounter cruelty and kindness:

he will become separated from the people he loves.

BOY 87 is a gripping, uplifting tale of one boy's struggle for survival;

it echoes the story of young people all over the world today.

"Full of tension, fear, heartbreak and hope".
