Summary

Two refugee brothers from Mongolia are determined to fit in with their Liverpool schoolmates, but bring so much of Mongolia to Bootle that their new friend and guide, Julie, is hard-pressed to know truth from fantasy as she recollects a wonderful friendship that was abruptly ended when Chingis and his family were forced to return to Mongolia.

Told with the humour, warmth, and brilliance of detail which characterises Frank Cottrell Boyce's writing, The Unforgotten Coat is a magical and compelling story.

Engaging, interesting, relevant

I found this story poignant, enjoyable and interesting
In a way, exactly the sort of story for our unknowable, strange and politicised times.

Apparently it us a book for young people, maybe it is also a book for people who want to understand more about refugees, but can't be doing with the news!
