This debut middle-grade novel chronicles the harrowing journey taken by Sami and his family from privilege to poverty, across countries and continents, from a comfortable life in Damascus, via a smuggler's den in Turkey, to a prison in Manchester. A story of survival, of family, of bravery ... In a world where we are told to see refugees as the 'other', this story will remind readers that 'they' are also 'us'.

Quotes

  • I wanted to shout and scream and ask why we were here. But I knew I couldn't. We were all in the same situation. I had to stay quiet – Mama said so. "You can do this, Sami," I told myself. "It'll all be okay once you get to England."
