No More Borders for JosefBook - 2006
Orphaned in the brutal Balkans conflict, thirteen year old Josef is forced to flee dramatically through the forest to the border. Frightened, angry and deeply traumatised he then suffers the uncertainty and boredom of a refugee camp before finally being plucked to safety in Australia by an uncle he never knew existed.Cast adrift from everything familiar to him, Josef must battle with a new culture, a new language and a strange landscape. His strength of character and quiet determination save him from desolation as he forges new friendships, and discovers a world of healing in a native animal refuge. No More Borders for Josef is an emotionally charged and uplifting story that highlights the resilience of youth in the face of trauma and adversity.
