Presents a book by the author who won the Guardian Fiction Award for her book "Paper Faces", and is acclaimed for "Scavenger's Tale" and "Sweet Bird of Youth". This book is companion to "War Orphan". This is a story about a Vietnamese orphan, born among the bombings and terrors of war.
No one really knew the true story of Uncle Ho's early life before he came to Amy's family. All they knew was that he was a Vietnamese orphan, born among the bombings and terrors of war. Amy's grandmother told her the same stories that she told Uncle Ho because as Granny said, 'everyone needs to know the story of their life, even if it has to be invented.' But the warland nightmares in Uncle Ho's head won't go away. * A companion to 'War Orphan'. * Rachel Anderson has previously won the Guardian Fiction Award for her book "Paper Faces". * Her recent young adult titles for Oxford ("Scavenger's Tale") and Hodder ("Sweet Bird of Youth") have been much acclaimed. * Rachel Anderson's own adoption of a Vietnamese war orphan gives her writing a unique insight into the history of this troubled country. * Rachel Anderson lives in Norfolk.
