By Kandace Chimbiri
The story before the scandal. A book to celebrate the inspiring legacy of the Windrush pioneers. In June 1948, hundreds of Caribbean men, women and children arrived in London on a ship called the Empire Windrush. Combining historical fact with voices from the Windrush Generation, this book sensitively tells the inspiring story of the Windrush Generation pioneers for younger readers.
This book dispels the myths and reveals the real history behind the headlines. It explains the context of the Windrush’s arrival seventy years ago, and shows why this information still matters today.

By Elijah Frederick (13 years old)
Bullied by Nathan and his friends, Tadeo was a tormented genius who was isolated and excluded by everyone in his class. Through an unlucky pairing in class, a brawny Nathan and a victimized Tadeo would have to deal with the misery of working together on a computing project.
With Nathan constantly giving Tadeo a hard time and making very little effort, Tadeo is left to work on his own only to be sucked into the game they were creating for the project. Tadeo finds himself in a strange world where he learns a terrible truth about a blood curdling menace who has been reigning through fear and terror.
