In a country ripped apart by war, Tareq lives with his big
and loving family . . . until the bombs strike. His city is
in ruins. His life is destroyed. And those who have survived
are left to figure out their uncertain future. Tareq's
family knows that to continue to stay alive, they must
leave. As they travel as refugees from Syria to Turkey to
Greece, facing danger at every turn, Tareq must find the
resilience and courage to complete his harrowing journey.
While this is one family's story, it is also the timeless
tale of the heartbreaking consequences of all wars, all
tragedy, narrated by Destiny itself. When you are a
refugee, success is outliving your loss.
An award-winning author and journalist—and a refugee
herself—Atia Abawi captures the hope that spurs people
forward against all odds and the love that makes that hope grow.
