Far From Home by Kirsten Spiteri is a book aimed at Young Adults. Rob awakens in a cave in Buskett, frightened, with no memory of who he is or where he came from. Sensing that he is different, people he encounters feel threatened by him and he knows he is in grave danger. The world he finds himself in is vastly different than his own, they hurt animals, steal and lie. The Bondins, a Maltese family shelter him despite great danger to themselves. He must find a way to get back to his own world, his own family, before its too late. Reminiscent of Ray Bradbury, Kirsten Spiteri has an uncanny ability to reach you through his sci-fi narrative. In a world that is filled with senseless hatred, he depicts the importance of standing up for whats right against tremendous odds. Far From Home challenges the reader to explore and question societal norms. It is a must-read for all young adults.
