In her review of Malkin Moonlight published in the TES, she writes;
…. this theme cleverly mirrors the crisis our society is facing at the moment, with fear and distrust of immigrants seemingly being the overwhelming reason that people voted leave in the recent EU referendum. This part of the book would provide an excellent starting point for a discussion with children about the rights of others and the current immigration situation, and about how they think some of these issues could be resolved.
Given that the debate on “Brexit” now dominates the political landscape, it is clearly an issue close to people’s hearts.
