Resource Description

This timely and engaging graphic novel focuses on the lives of Syrian refugees and the conditions they encounter as they flee their homes and head to Europe, seeking safety, refuge for their families, and a normal life. The author presents their stories by focusing on the human aspects of being a refugee rather than religious, political, and cultural issues, including their motivations for risking their lives, and how they are received in a number of European countries. The compelling visuals that accompany the text help students understand their plight and their motivations and make the story accessible to a wide range of learners in grades 9-12.
