" Funny, sad, haunting and original, Cottrell Boyce's story leaves important elements unexpressed. As with lace, these holes are part of the design, echoed in the unadorned photos: a path through a dark forest; wagon tracks across a field that meet the lowering sky; shadows on a yurt wall."
From the Publisher
Annotation In Frank Cottrell Boyce's cleverly layered and well-written middle grade novel, immigration and ethnicity are major players. When Chingis and his little brother, Nergui, arrive at a Liverpool elementary school, no one knows what to make of the Mongolian siblings. Chingis is fiercely protective of Nergui, and when they appoint a sixth-year girl named Julie to be their "Good Guide,"" to help them understand their new surroundings, she jumps at the chance. Aside from helping the boys understand football, local slang, and how to be normal, Julie is very curious about their origins. Though Chingis claims he is hiding Nergui from a demon, and has photographs to prove it, Julie's not so sure until it's too late. With an thoughtful, political afterward explaining the author's inspiration for the story.
