Joshua is a troubled boy who lives with his mother and stepfather in a divided city, where a wall and soldiers separate two communities and the rubble-strewn residue of their broken world gives hints of the old life before the wall was built. Joshua discovers a manhole, which leads to a tunnel, which leads in pitch darkness under the wall and across to the other side. Forbidden territory, dangerous territory, violent territory, which a boy like him - visibly different - shouldn't stray into. An act of kindness from a girl saves his life, but leads to a brutal act of cruelty and a terrible debt he's determined to repay. And no one, no one must find out that he's been there - or the consequences will be unbearable.

“Gripping and enlightening”

The Wall is a powerful, gripping read, giving an insight into life in an area which has been divided by conflict. While it never explicitly says so in the novel, the setting is based on the Palestine/Israel conflict.... More

“Un-put-down-able”

People have been saying that this book is similar to John Boyne's 'The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas', I agree that there are similarities, but this book should be stand alone and not compared to anything... More
