Shema is an eight-year-old Rwandan goatherd from a child-led family. His dream of becoming an airline pilot has moved one step closer, as he can now go to school - but he and his family and friends still have many exciting and dangerous challenges to face in the Village of Hope. Frida is tricked into leaving her brother and sister and becoming a domestic servant in the city; Sam is falsely accused of stealing; a football match has an uncertain ending; will the children's new faith triumph?
The thrilling sequel to I Want to Be an Airline Pilot, but still a lovely story in its own right. For 8-11s.
