An uplifting story of friendship, unity and hope that highlights the important and topical issues surrounding young carers and young refugees. Fourteen-year-old Stevie lives in Lewes with her beloved vinyl collection, her mum ... and her mum's depression. When Stevie's mum's disability benefits are cut, Stevie and her mother are plunged into a life of poverty. But irrepressible Stevie is determined not to be beaten and she takes inspiration from the lyrics of her father's 1980s record collection and dreams of a life as a musician. Then she meets Hafiz, a talented footballer and a Syrian refugee. Hafiz's parents gave their life savings to buy Hafiz a safe passage to Europe; his journey has been anything but easy. Then he meets Stevie... As Stevie and Hafiz's friendship grows, they encourage each other to believe in themselves and follow their dreams.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"I was stunned into silence at the beauty of this book!" * addictedtobooks.blog *
"I absolutely loved every page." * Fallen Star Stories *
`A sincere and heartfelt book, Don't Stop Thinking About Tomorrow deals with the difficult and timely issues of racism, the Syrian refugee crisis and depression. It pulls no punches, handling the issues with great understanding and sensitivity, but also with pinpoint accuracy ... Thoughtful, expressive and joyful. I absolutely loved every page.' * Fallen Star Stories *
`I loved this book so much! I wanted to keep reading and never stop, Even though I am not a refugee, I am an immigrant and Muslim too. I could relate to Hafiz on so many levels. I loved the characterisation and the fact that the author portrayed Hafiz accurately, taking in even the minute details of his background into account. It had me teared up on so many occasions and that's saying something because books rarely make me emotional. I would highly recommend reading this book.' * Hadia's Bookstop *
`Award-winning author Siobhan Curham has come up with a stunner. This lovely book deals with some dark stuff - poverty, bereavement, the refugee experience, mental illness, bullying. The searing truth of what's happening to Hafiz and to Stevie breaks your heart but Siobhan writes with such a light touch - and there's humour and music and chips and Brighton Pier. When you read this, it will break your heart and then put it back together again stronger and full of love. Can't praise this too highly.' * Thea Bennett, author *
