"...An important book--a book that shows how art and activism can change the way people see the world and see themselves." -Rajani LaRocca, Newbury Honor and Walter Award-winning author of Red, White, and Whole
"A well-characterized novel offering insight into Syrian perspectives."--Kirkus Reviews

"High-stakes conflicts in the form of Kareem's fears for those he left behind play powerfully against adolescent challenges, such as Sam's emotionally vulnerable angst about fitting in, delivering a strongly paced tale."--Publishers Weekly

"Thought-provoking and heartfelt, this novel parallels the struggles teens feel with loss and bullying situations to the oppression that citizens often feel when the government is deceitful. Preteens and teens will find this book relatable and real. An outstanding novel that hits its mark, demonstrating that young teens grapple with a gamut of emotions and situations yet are resilient enough to work through them and achieve success. Highly recommended." --School Library Journal STARRED Review

"This is a must-read for those looking for more Arab and Muslim representation in middle-grade titles. Roumani skillfully weaves together two different points of view to create a powerful story of activism that captures the importance of standing up for yourself and advocating for others." --Booklist

"This is a powerful read."--BookRiot
