Run for Your Life
A moving and sensitive children’s book exploring a child's experience living in refugee accommodation in Ireland.
Azari’s life has been split in two and the halves are as different as lemons and mangoes. Running links the two parts of her life: sometimes when she runs it is because she wants to, because she feels strong and free. But sometimes it is because she has no other choice.
When Azari and her mother flee for their lives to Ireland they are put in a centre for asylum seekers. They must share a room with a stranger, eat food they don’t know the name of and answer intrusive questions from authorities. Azari's life has secrets. Will she ever be able to stop running?
