Escape from Aleppo

(4) 4-6 In war-ravaged 2013 Aleppo, tween Nadia is separated from her family and must try to find them across the Turkish border. Over four harrowing days, she travels with two other young people and an old bookbinder with friends in all factions. The complex narrative with occasional flashbacks isn't always fully realistic, but it weaves in extensive information about the Arab Spring and Syria's political history. Author's note.
