The Ones That Disappeared

The Ones That Disappeared (Paperback, Digital original)

By Fraillon, Zana

Matais and Josue are Syrian refugees. Having reached the supposed safety of the West, they find themselves trafficked into the dark and unseen world of modern slavery. Alone and vulnerable, all they have is each other. But when they finally chance their escape in order to return ...home, Matais is caught by the police and the boys are separated. Hiding out near the river as he forms a plan to save his friend, Josue meets a girl - Skeet. One night, Skeet starts to form the figure of a human from the mud by the river - and in the morning there sits a man. A man that seems to be human. But is he? And why is he carrying a chain that belongs to Matais? As they follow the Mud Man - hoping he will lead them to Matais - they discover an underground world of tunnels and chambers, and the Mud Man's lair, where their journey to find Matais unfolds. This is a SKELLIG for this generation; beautiful, magical and with Zana's incredible talent for combining important global issues with extraordinary storytelling.
