That was where she needed to be, in a field of purple flowers, where no one could bother her. She would sit there until the confusion left her head and the stink of the camp left her nostrils. Shauzia has a dream. She dreams of getting away from the refugee camp in Pakistan and travelling to France. There she knows she would find a better life, away from the war in her home country of Afghanistan ... But escape is not so easy. Once she leaves the camp, she has no money, no food?and only her dog Jasper for company. But Shauzia is determined to find a new future for herself .
