October, 1946. The Red Cross escort a group of child refugees from Europe to England. Among them is
Brigitta - a serious, silent figure with worn clothes and a small cardboard suitcase containing a single grey glove. Arriving in London, Brigitta breaks from the group and runs . . .Brigitta's mission: to reach Summerland Hall and find the one person who can solve a wartime mystery. But Summerland holds secrets and shadows of its own... and perhaps the key to a new life and new beginnings.An extraordinarily rich tale of love, prejudice, truth and forgiveness, inspired by real events.

Praise for The Red Ribbon: Captivates, inspires and ultimately enriches.
Heather Morris, author of The Tattooist of Auschwitz

Lucy Adlington's read is a tear jerker. Bookworms are calling it a cross between The Diary of Anne Frank and The Boy in the Striped Pyjama and it's a reading list essential
Maximum Pop

The Red Ribbon is the best YA novel about the Holocaust I have read. The story it threads together is gripping, moving and important . . . deeply-researched, but wears its learning so lightly that the history is woven seamlessly into the fabric of the colourful story . . . deserves to be very widely appreciated indeed, and I urge teachers and Holocaust educators especially to read it.
