Marked as a ‘must-read’ by media and peer reviews, and on multiple award lists, Flyaway Boy is about how we stifle anyone who is different. The story of ten-year-old Kabir finds echoes in our own childhood. Kabir doesn’t fit in. Not in the wintry hill town he lives in, and not in his school, where the lines are always straight. Backed into a corner with no way out, Kabir vanishes. With every parent’s nightmare now coming true, finding this flyaway boy will mean understanding who he really is. But how?
With humour and imagination, Flyaway Boy highlights how special a child’s thinking is, until we box it. It is a celebration of whatever makes you uniquely you.
