MaliniCall to Order
In the closing stages of Sri Lanka’s civil war, Malini and her family are herded by soldiers to the coast – where they will act as human shields. Malini’s father tells her to hide in the forest with her younger sister, Banni. But once the shelling begins, Malini realises they’re not safe there, and they must travel inland to their grandfather’s village. But how will they survive? Who can she trust? And will she ever see her parents again?
The uplifting story of one girl’s odyssey through war-torn Sri Lanka, written by Robert Hillman.
Part of the absorbing?Through My Eyes?series, which provides insight into the problems and difficulties experienced by children in disaster stricken areas, war zones and other terrifying places around the world.
