What About Thao?

CBCA Notables 2023. Thao and his family move from their Aussie capital city to a small country town and while at first Thao dreads it, he finds it actually is suits him and his family. Then another new family moves to town, who have moved from Syria, but they don’t seem to be adjusting as well as Thao’s family. Thao just wants things to go back to how it was before Kadir moved here, when he was getting along with everyone, and didn’t seem to stick out so much. Highly Recommended.
