Children of ExileBook - 2016
Rosi, 12, has lived all her life in sheltered Fredtown, a community of adults who took in refugee children to raise them in a safe environment. Her adoptive parents have lovingly raised Rosi and her little brother, Bobo, but always made it clear that one day they|and all the children in Fredtown|would be returned to their real parents. When the day comes, initial excitement soon turns to disappointment and fear as the children of Fredtown meet their real parents, who are physically and emotionally scarred and have no idea how to relate to the children they have not seen since birth. In Fredtown, appearances were unimportant, but here eye color seems to provoke prejudice. What happened back home while the Freds were raising other people|s children? Why isn|t it safe to go out after dark?
