These short and inspirational books provide ideal reading
material for those who want to improve their English language
and literacy skills and will also appeal to anyone interested
in the moving stories of refugees and migrants.
They are written by people from different cultures
about their experiences in their own countries and in
Britain. The first five titles, by women from Somalia,
Pakistan, Bangladesh, Vietnam and the Canary Islands,
were first published between 1987 and 1994. Then in
2007, with the help of a grant from the Get London Reading
Campaign, a competition was run to encourage students
of English to tell their own stories, and the three
winning entries were published in the series.
New editions of the three most popular early titles
are now available, bringing them up to date.
