From Onjali Q. Rauf, the award-winning and best-selling author of The Boy at the Back of the Class, comes another incredible story, told with humour and heart.

Touching on themes of historical racism, missing histories and the concept of a universal family, The Lion Above the Door shines a light on the stories our history books have yet to contain and the power of friendships that can last through generations.

In the media
Rauf's latest has a quite brilliant premise in which the bully, not the bullied, tells his tale. A thought-provoking and often very funny story which constantly plays with reader expectations.
