But i just knew.' Jaz has found the best way to make friends with new girl Nadima, who doesn't speak any English - by offering her a chocolate bar. Nadima grins and offers back some Turkish Delight, the ice is broken, and a special friendship begins ...



I liked the book very much. My favourite character was Jaz she tried to make friends with Nadima who can't speak english.It interested me because there is no such language chocolate. I would recommend this book to someone.

I would recommend this fiction book as it is about true friendship and how even if you upset someone you can always be forgiven and become friends again.

I liked this book because of the strong friendship between Nadima and Jaz. They were friends from the moment Jaz saw Nadima and since then showed a strong friendship till the end although some things made it hard for Nadima to trust Jaz. My favourite character was Jaz because she was a person who was dyslexic but knew it wouldn’t stop her from doing the things she wanted to do like communicating to a girl who doesn’t speak much English and being a successful businesswoman . I would recommend this to my friends. This might be my favourite book so far.

It was an amazing book about friendship, laughter, and lots of chocolate! Love the 'Chocolate Turkish Delight' recipe, by the way.

I liked the book as it explained how people who have evacuated their country would feel. My favourite character is Nadima as she has an interesting story. I would recommend this book to people age 7-13

I thought it will teach me how to speak chocolate, but it didn't. I like Jaz. I'm not sure if I recommend it to someone else.

I really loved it. I like Nadima because she is quite cheeky and kind even though she does not understand much. I also like Lily because she seems really sweet and caring towards everyone, even people that she might not understand or like. I would recommend it to 5+.

Giving each other chocolate and turkish delight helps them become friends!

I really like how this book was a diary but some parts of this book were upsetting. There was a refugee who got upset a lot and she made me upset. I liked the bit when they won the maths challenge. It’s a good book but makes you really think.

Coach Hopscotch Rollercoaster 31.08.2021


I think this is my favourite book because it's about Jaz who meets the new girl Nadima at school. At first, Nad doesn't know how to speak English but soon, she even starts correcting Jaz! I really recommend this awesome book for 9-13+.
