An innocent night out to celebrate a sixteenth birthday turns to tragedy in this powerful story of racial intolerance from award-winning author Bali Rai.

It’s Arjan’s sixteenth birthday and he’s celebrating with his mates – going to see a film and then get a Nando’s. He’s looking forward to some good banter and wondering what might happen with Jem, who’s been looking at him differently these days …

But the night comes to a dramatic and violent end when Arjan is targeted by a group of racist thugs, who single him out due to the colour of his skin and the turban that he wears as a symbol of his commitment to his faith and culture.

Is the life of a good friend and beloved son really worth so little?

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Powerful and heart-breaking … Bali Rai … forces the reader to think. A Sudden Storm will stay with you long after you have turned the last page – a fantastic, important and unfortunately necessary read." – Librarian “With a heart-wrenching and devastating portrayal of systematic racism this book will stay with the reader for a long time … Accompanied with stunning black and white illustrations by David Shepherd which help bring this story to life.” – Little Blog of Library Treasures
