The Unforgotten Coat

author: Frank Cottrell Boyce

When two Mongolian brothers inexplicably appear one morning in Julie’s Year Six class, no one, least of all Julie, knows what to make of them. But then Chingis, the older of the two, proclaims that Julie is to be their "Good Guide" a nomadic tradition that makes her responsible for welcoming the brothers to their new home. Now Julie must somehow navigate them through soccer, school uniforms, and British slang, all while trying to win Shocky’ s attention and an invitation to her friend Mimi’s house. Often laugh-out-loud funny, this moving and simply told novella tugs at the heart -- a unique story of immigration both fierce in its telling and magical in its characters.

From the best-selling author of COSMIC and MILLIONS comes an evocative immigration tale about two brothers trying to survive-- a daring story that miraculously defies belief.
