Rollercoasters: Looking at the Stars Summary

Rollercoasters: Looking at the Stars by Jo Cotterill

Amina's country has been taken over by a new regime where women have no rights and it is not safe to question the leader. The citizens are ranked by their age, status and family heritage. Amina is constantly dreaming of a better and safer life where she can speak freely without risking arrest, or worse. When civil war breaks out, Amina's family is brutally torn apart. Forced to leave their quiet village life, and fearful of the future, Amina and her sister Jenna begin a long journey to a refugee camp. To keep their minds off the grief and horror, Amina tells her sister stories about the stars they can see in the night sky. This award-winning book delivers a powerful message about the importance of imagination, hope and friendship in the darkest times.
