I absolutely loved this book! It was so attaching, touching, and made me understand the difficulties of life during the wars. I guarantee that you will love this book, and that you will fall Isabel, Mahmoud, and Josef's world. I highly recommend this book to anyone, both kids and adults. Alan Gratz strikes again!

This book is so good, once you opened it, you can't stop reading it.
Highly recommend!!!!!
When it got to the excited part, it jumps to the next story. It makes you want to read faster/keep on reading to know what happened next. But meanwhile, the chapter is very exciting too and it goes on and on like a cycle until you finished the book.
You still think about it after you finished the book and it stays in your brain forever.
Also, I know more about refugees and when I read the book, I feel like I'm a refugee and I experience what Isabel, Josef and Mahmoud gone though.

Highly recommend this title! It tells the story of three children and their families’ harrowing escapes from their repressive homelands toward their dreams of freedom. Although set in three different time periods, the shared fears and hopes of each immigrant are so vividly and emotionally told, I couldn’t put the book down.

This is a great "windows" book for middle graders to read about refugee experiences. Exciting enough to keep them engaged...and very clear about how hard it is to be a refugee.

Loved this book, really engaging and hard to put down, did get a bit confusing when switching between the three main characters.
