Reviews

[H]umane and empathetic . . . Not only eye-opening, important and topical, but a vivid, emotionally involving, nail-biting read . . .an effective call to action. * Nicolette Jones, The Sunday Times Children's Book of the Week *
A muscular, moving, thought-provoking book from an award-winning writer * Imogen Russell Williams, Guardian *
[I]n bringing the fate of the victims of the Syrian conflict to life for young readers, both to inform and encourage sympathy and understanding, it is much to be admired. * Books for Keeps *
An important story for our time * Scottish Book Trust *
Not only does it explain how the war in Syria began in as clear a way as I have ever heard but [Elizabeth Laird] makes her characters lovable, loathable - and believable. They are children of war but not defined by it . . . fascinating and sing[s] with truth. * Alex O'Connell, The Times Children's Book of the Week *
This powerful, dramatic story, poignantly illustrates how war affects ordinary people * Bookseller *
Deeply moving . . . you can always count on Elizabeth Laird to write fearlessly but with compassion and this story will give readers plenty to think about * Bookbag *
A poignant, special book which is beautifully written. Essential reading. * ReadingZone *
Powerful, heart-breaking and compelling * The Scotsman *
