Praise

“Both sobering and informative, this story of human suffering…calls necessary attention to the brokenness of democratic legal systems and their terrifying inability to effectively handle ongoing humanitarian emergencies like the Syrian refugee crisis. Eye-opening reading for anyone interested in learning more about refugees and their plights.” —Kirkus Reviews

“This harrowing tale of escape from Syria is a dramatic description of the challenges people face fleeing Assad’s dictatorship and the country’s brutal civil war.” —David L. Phillips, Director of the Program on Peace-Building and Human Rights at Columbia University’s Institute for the Study of Human Rights, and author of Frontline Syria: From Revolution to Proxy War

“A deeply affecting book. It reads like a crime novel, but it’s a true story…A breathtaking account that illustrates…the tragedy experienced by hundreds of thousands of Syrians who set out on the road to exile since 2015.” —Mediapart
 
“Touching…heartrendingly sincere…a harsh and oh-so accurate portrait of the difficult living conditions of these displaced persons.” —France Soir
