Cartwheel has arrived in a new country, and feels the loss of all she's ever known. She creates a safe place for herself under an "old blanket" made out of memories and thoughts of home. But when she meets a new friend, the relationship helps her take her first steps into a new culture, and Cartwheel begins to weave a "new blanket," one of friendship and a renewed sense of belonging.

A book that tenderly shares the refugee experience of a young child. "Then the war came" and Cartwheel (a name her Aunt gave her) is suddenly lost amidst the noise and foreignness of a new country. Until she is befriended by another young girl while visiting the playground.

This book is delicate and beautiful - an exploration of learning a new language and culture while valuing and keeping the original one.
