Longlisted for the 2015 Carnegie Medal.

Red asks, 'Will we always be together?'
'Always,' I say. 'Just you and me in that little boat, watching the scarlet ibis flying back to the Caroni Swamp.'
Scarlet's used to looking after her brother, Red. He's special - different. Every night she tells him his favourite story - about the day they'll fly far away to the Caroni Swamp in Trinidad, where thousands of birds fill the sky.
But when Scarlet and Red are split up and sent to live with different foster families, Scarlet knows she's got to do whatever it takes to get her brother back . . .
Once read, never forgotten - this is the deeply moving new story from award-winning author Gill Lewis, now available in paperback.
