The Ones That Disappeared
Who can you call when trouble strikes? Forget calling home or dialling 999. The kid slaves in this book have no one to help them. Only a magical man made of mud… Esra, Miran and little Isa have escaped from a ruthless gang. But they’re not free – not yet. Miran has been captured by the corrupt police. Now Esra is all alone, looking after Isa. Hiding in the shadows of the forest, she meets a local boy with his own story. Together, they start to build a man: a man made of mud. A saviour who’ll come to life and lead them through a dark labyrinth of tunnels. Until, one day, they have the courage to break free and step above ground…
