Refugee

A powerful new novel for your young adult reader and a favourite pick for teachers so I had to investigate. Josef is Jewish in Germany, 1938 – the Nazis have ordered his family to leave Germany. With threats of concentration camps looming, he and his family board a ship bound for the other side of the world. Isabel is a Cuban girl in 1994 in amongst riots and civil unrest all around. Her family make the frantic dash to escape on a raft bound for America and safety. Mahmoud is a Syrian boy in 2015 with his homeland torn apart by violence and destruction. His family starts the long trek to the Turkish border and then on, with hope, to reach Europe. All three young people are on harrowing journeys in search of refuge – all face unimaginable danger of drownings, bombing, betrayals and all are at great risk. The hope of a better, safer place spurs them on and although their lives are separated by continents and decades, a shocking connection will tie all their lives together. An outstanding and inspirational read that will move you to compassion towards those in dire circumstances beyond their control.
