Without Refuge

(3) 4-6 This tough but important read follows thirteen-year-old Ghalib as his family flees civil war–ravaged Syria in hopes of reaching the (relative) safety of Europe. They experience heart-stopping danger at border crossings, grim refugee camps, separation, and finally a harrowing boat ride to Greece. Appended with an author's note, discussion guide, and a list of the deceased Syrian children for whom characters were named. Glos.
