Abela This moving and gripping novel by a Carnegie Medal-winning author charts the gradual convergence of the world of Abela, a young Tanzanian girl who is orphaned by Aids, and becomes an illegal immigrant in the UK, with that of Rosa, who lives in Sheffield with her mother, and is in secret rebellion against the idea of having an adopted brother or sister. Both girls must deal with profound changes in their lives and their respective dilemmas are counterpointed in an absorbing, tense narrative.
