Ash Mundair is sick of his dad telling him how lucky he is and how grateful he should be to go to a good school and get an education. Despite how hard Ash works, it seems it’s never enough for his dad, and Ash begins to wonder why he should bother at all. He doesn’t feel he will ever understand what it was like for his dad to have to leave his home in Uganda to come and live in England during the 1970s. That is until a trip back to that time unveils the difficulties that people like Ash’s dad faced and what it was like to be an ethnic minority at such a tense time.
Ideal for those who love historical fiction, time travel and books about friendship, the Time School series is upper middle grade, aimed at children aged 9-13 years.
