Kiran Millwood Hargrave’s tale of inspiring and selfless courage is a great starting point for a variety of KS2 activities.
Amihan and her Nanay live together on Culion, a gorgeous island that is blessed with gorgeous weather and features stunning greenery and beautiful beaches. But life on Culion is not as desirable as the divine setting would have you believe: it is, in fact, an island for lepers.
Despite this, life is peaceful and the inhabitants go about their day-to-day business with little fuss. That is, until government representative Mr Zamora turns up to announce a new government initiative that will tear the island apart.
Those with leprosy (the ‘Touched’) are to be segregated from those without (the ‘Untouched’). Even worse for Amihan and her Nanay, those under 18 that do not suffer with leprosy will be sent to live in an orphanage on the separate island of Coron.
Subsequently, Ami is shipped off with Mr Zamora and the other children of Culion to an island where the locals are unfriendly, and where she misses her Nanay dearly.
With the help of new friend Mari, can she get back to Culion and be reunited with her family, before it’s too late?
Kiran Millwood Hargrave’s stunning second novel is a beautifully written, heartbreaking yet heartfelt novel that is bound to have your class captivated from the first few words. It’s a perfect piece for some brilliant PSHE and science links.
