Description:
There used to be an empty chair at the back of my class, but now a new boy called Ahmet is sitting in it. He's nine years old (just like me), but he's very strange. He never talks and never smiles and doesn't like sweets - not even lemon sherbets, which are my favourite! But the truth is, Ahmet really isn't very strange at all. He's a refugee who's run away from a war. A real one. With bombs and fires and bullies that hurt people. And the more I find out about him, the more I want to be his friend. That's where my best friends Josie, Michael and Tom come in. Because you see, together we've come up with a plan.

The boy at the back of the class was a very beautiful story. I liked how Alexa and her friends, Josie, Michael and Tom were willing to help Ahmet. It was very caring of them to go through all the trouble for him, his family and most importantly other refuges like him. I thought that the Alexa and her friends were very brave to do what they did.
