Reema runs to remember the life she left behind in Syria.
Caylin runs to find what she’s lost.

Under the grey Glasgow skies, twelve-year-old Syrian refugee Reema is struggling to find her place in a new country and learning a new language without her brother. But she isn’t the only one feeling lost. Her Glasgwegian neighbor Caylin is lonely and lashing out.

When they discover an injured fox and her cubs hiding on their estate, the girls form a wary friendship. It turns out they are more alike than they could have imagined; they both love to run.

As Reema and Caylin learn again to believe in themselves and in others, they find friendship, freedom, and the discovery that home isn’t a place but the people you love.

Heartfelt and filled with hope, The Fox Girl and the White Gazelle is an uplifting story about the power of friendship and belonging. Inspired by her work with young asylum seekers, debut novelist Victoria Williamson’s stunning story of displacement and discovery will speak to anyone who has ever asked, “Where do I belong?”
