Abdi from Shining – The Story of a Lucky Man talks about his younger years before civil war broke out in Somalia. This story is full of Abdi’s infectious humour and his belief that every person has the right to a productive life, most of all anyone can do it!
Through his stories in Never Give Up! Abdi manages to share the normalities of life of a refugee child before war, the harrowing experiences of a refugee child during war and the struggles of a refugee child finding their place in the world after war. Persistence, resilience. determination, using humour in the face of adversity are the underlying theme that make Never Give Up! a must for young readers. — Sam Fleming, Assistant Primary School Principal
