After most of Tareq’s family is killed when a barrel bomb strikes their apartment in Syria, he knows he must leave his beloved home to survive. Narrated by Destiny, this heartbreaking and informative novel follows Tareq as he, his father, and his sister make the perilous voyage across borders and oceans. Seasoned journalist Atia Abawi provides a firsthand look at refugee life—the vulnerability, the violence, the grief, and the nightmares that do not fade even after a journey is over. As they witness the trauma Tareq faces, readers will understand the importance of empathy and warmth in the face of unimaginable cruelty. (Ages 12 and up)
