My New Zealand Story is a series of books published that recalls historical events with realistic but fictitious characters blended into the retelling of key new Zealand events. Dawn Raid is the newest in this series covering the protests and how the immigration officials handled ‘overstayers’ from Pacific islanders in the 1970s. “Imagine this: You’re having an amazing family holiday, everyone is there and all eighteen of you are squeezed into one house. Fast forward to four o’clock in the morning, and there’s banging and yelling and screaming. The police are in the house pulling people out of bed... Through the eyes of 13 year old Sofia and her spirited, heartfelt diaries – we join Sofia as she navigates life in the 1970s and is inspired by the courageous, tireless work of the Polynesian Panthers as they encourage immigrant families across New Zealand to stand up for their rights.” Perfect for your young reader who prefers non-fiction or realistic historical stories.
