I wanted to enjoy this than I did and it had potential but ultimately it felt rushed and it wasn t the book I was expecting and so I finished it disappointedThis book introduced me to the recent history of Tibet which I am grateful for as I knew nothing about it before reading this book and to its credit it prompted and encouraged me to find out That being said I was expecting a journey book but the journey aspect of this book took up uite a short space and the book could have been improved by taking time and being longer Much of it felt rushed and while the short chapters were pacey and kept you reading there were times when I wanted to stay on a part of the story and explore it I appreciate it was written with a younger audience in mind and I would recommend it to young people but I did find it somewhat lacking

Summary ô PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ´ Jess Butterworth

Join year old Tash and the Roof Kindle #209 her best friend Sam in a story of adventure survival and hope set in the vivid Himalayan landscape of Tibet and India Filled with friendship love and courage this young girl's thrilling journey to save her parents is an ideal read for children aged There are two words that are banned. Beautiful to look at and easy to read this is the story of Tibetan children Tash and Sam Within the first few pages a shocking incident sends their village into lockdown The Chinese soldiers go looking for sympathisers and Tash s parents come under suspicion They are taken away and it is up to Tash and her best friend to get a message out to the Resistance to help set them freeI d guess this was written with a middle school audience in mind and for the most part that seems a good fit BUT I feel the shocking incident while not graphic in its depiction might be too much for sensitive young readers as it is referred to freuently throughout the story However I enjoyed the book for myself and would recommend with this caution

    E ARC from NetgalleyWhen Tash and her friend Sam witness a man self immolating himself in the market place in their small Tibetan town they are scared for many reasons The police frown on any activity they do not approve and punish the transgressors heavily Sam's father is so bludgeoned by his surroundings that he doesn't care all that much about taking care of Sam but Tash's parents are both supportive of her and resistant to the Chines
