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".
