Honeysuckle House

Write a Review

Ten-year-old Sarah Misses her best friend and neighbour, Victoria, terribly. She still waits for her in the back garden in case she comes back. The last thing Sarah needs is to be paired with the new girl at school, Tina, who has just arrived from China. Sarah is used to being confused with other Far-Eastern students at school but she doesn't want to assume that she and Tina have a lot in common. Sarah and Tina are reluctant to forge a friendship but both of them must come to terms with the changes in their lives. This an immigrant story with a twist. Told in alternating stories and in the innocent voices of two ten year old girls, "Honeysuckle House" addresses alienation, longing, prejudice, and cultural differences without ever losing touch with the true pre-occupations of childhood.
