War of the Wind
by Victoria Williamson
Publication Date: 23rd September 2022
Publisher: Neem Tree Press
A truly powerful book that highlights many of the issues facing young people in their daily lives. And of course an added government plot to try and destroy the island they call home.
War of the Wind takes a hard look at the perception of children with disabilities or additional needs. It doesn’t shy away from the cruelty and bias that they face but at the same time focuses on them as intelligent young people. Highlighting issues of bullying and self doubt. This book is a must read. It will make you stop and think about how are actions affect others and also our own blindness to something we say or do.
A gripping plot that will have you desperate to read more. The story is full of suspense - just when you think things can’t get worse a event will arise that has your heart in your throat.
