"[Brown] succeeds in offering a window into the humanity of displaced groups--their resilience and tenacity but also their inspiring, hopeful nature. The pen-and-ink digitally colored art has a loose, informal style that vividly expresses the intense emotions contained in the book. A moving chronicle of a real humanitarian tragedy."--Kirkus, STARRED review "Brown provides concrete comparisons that make the problem more tangible and relatable...The varied panels perfectly control the pacing, thoughtfully guiding readers through difficult subject matter."--Horn Book Magazine, STARRED review "This accessible and heartbreaking primer, with its stirring simplicity and a note of hope, should be required reading for all teens hoping to be empathetic and engaged world citizens."--School Library Journal, STARRED review "The author of Drowned City again humanizes a story that can seem remote and incomprehensible: this time, the Syrian refugee crisis."--Publishers Weekly "An unflinching look at the Syrian refugee crisis...this is no elegy; rather, it's a call for action and acknowledgment the world over."--Booklist "Few will fail to be moved by direct quotes from the refugees as they capture readers directly with their troubled eyes: "The future is not for us. The future is for our children." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books --
