Children of the Stone City (MP3 CD)

Children of the Stone City By Beverley Naidoo, N'Jameh Camara (Read by) Cover Image


A powerful novel by Carnegie Medal-winning author Beverley Naidoo that is in turns heart-wrenching, infuriating, and inspiring--and at its core, a call to readers to make a better world than they have found.

Adam and his sister, Leila, are Nons--second-class citizens, living under the Permitted ruling class. Though their life in the Stone City is filled with family, stories, and music, they must carefully follow the rules, have all paperwork on hand, and never, ever do anything to anger a Permitted. When their father unexpectedly dies, they are even restricted in how they are allowed to grieve.

Soon, Adam and Leila are back to school and practicing music again. But when Adam's friend Zak plays a bold prank on a group of Permitted boys, and Adam is implicated in Zak's crime, Adam knows their lives will never be the same again.

Not to be missed by any reader who was moved by Veera Hiranandani's The Night Diary or Alan Gratz's Refugee.
