I highly recommend this heartbreaking yet uplifting book about not only a young man but the human spirit Rufgee 87 is the heartbreaking and inspirational story of Shif, his best friend, Bini, and

is fast paced and told in a spare, but compelling language The reader is immediately drawn into Shif s impoverished but full life as a young student with a sharp mind and love of beating his best friend, Bini, at chess In Shif s home country it s common practice for teens to join the military and serve a minimum amount of years facing arduous physical conditions and entrapment, never to return home again Unfortunately for Shif, his father was labeled as a dissenter by the government and detained several years earlier This left Shif, his mother and younger sister alone with a target placed on their backs Since then Shif has been keeping his head down and in his books, but a chance encounter with the military while out buying produce puts him on their radar Fearing retaliation, Shif s mother begins to make plans with Bini s mother, Saba, to expedite the boys to safety But before their plan can be put into motion the military comes for the boys unexpectedly Bini and Shif must leave their family and belongings behind with nothing but the clothes on their backs and some money Shif s mother had sewn into his shoes many nights earlier This forward thinking act from his mother and Shif s quick wits help the boys navigate many perilous situations throughout the story, including a prison camp, refugee traffickers, and other adults looking to take advantage of their situation Amidst the heart pounding tension are themes of friendship, trust, and help from kind strangers along the way that propels the reader from the beginning to the end of Shif s journey I can t go divulge too much about the plot without getting into spoilers, but this book was breathtaking and incredibly relevant concerning the present day refugee crisis An interesting note form the author states that the countries mentioned in the story are never specifically named, as Shif s story can be applied to children across the world today Central America, Syria, Myanmar, and South Sudan, though there are clues left in the text for the reader if they wish to dig deeper and trace Shif s journey for themselves For similar titles check out Refugee by Alan Gratz and the graphic novel, Illegal by Eoin

Shif is 14, and along with his best friend Bini, loves school, chess and maths After the disappearance death of his father, with his mother fearing they will be forced into military service and never return, Shif and Bini prepare to flee The story takes some rather dark turns, with the two boys subjected to horrific situations, potentially upsetting for some readers, as they illustrate for us what life can mean in countries that we don t hear much about.Shif makes a moving narrator, especially on the audiobook as him speaking directly to us adds a layer of authenticity and realism His story a perfect way into topics of emigration and refugees The book does not delve into such graphic content that younger readers would be excluded, but I would say a readership of age 10 and above would best be able to cope with the subject matter, and that parents teachers should make themselves aware of the content first, so they are on hand to discuss and answer questions A powerful story I d be happy to share this with a confident, resilient, secure class of Y6 children, it provides opportunities for rich discussions about poverty and injustice and cruelty, but I d urge caution the main character is often in real peril and he experiences the violent loss of people he is close to Read the whole novel before you think about sharing it with a whole class and watch very closely any child who chooses to read it independentlyThe violence and death does happen off A powerful story I d be happy to share this with a confident, resilient, secure class of Y6 children, it provides opportunities

extension of that episode which finishes the story in a very satisfying way We always know where the main character is headed and that gives us some security This review is also available on my

first glance, the storytelling feels simple, but there is just enough here to allow the reader to connect with Shif, and to experience the frightening events of the story with him The elegant, spare language gives the reader clear insights into Shif s character, his hopes and dreams for the future, and his ability to survive the trials of the journey Nothing is over dramatised, but the threats and the danger feel real With its simple storytelling and short length, Boy 87 feels like a book for younger children, but the events Shif describes require a YA level of maturity to understand and connect with As an adult I found the story truly frightening, imagining what it would feel like to have to leave your home, escape to another country, and trust people smugglers to take you on the dangerous sea crossing This isn t heroic YA It isn t a story of adventure or triumph But it is an insight into the motivations of the migrants who try again and again to reach safety in Europe Shif s experiences are relatable, haunting, and undoubtedly realistic, and the book would make a great introduction to the subject of migration, majority minority world politics, and the value of human life Boy 87 is an easy but thought provoking read, and an effective introduction to an important contemporary subject Definitely recommended I really enjoyed reading this book and getting to know the characters but i feel that the ending was very rushed and i still wanted too find outabout them and about what happened too them Shif, a young boy in a nameless but presumably Middle Eastern country,
