"It's strange how we'd got used to the war in Syria and thought it wouldn't affect us...But then everyone in Syria thought the war wouldn't affect them- until it did." 13-year-old Sami and his family flee their privileged, comfortable life in Damascus for safety in the UK. Challenges preconceptions about refugees and raises awareness of the multiple obstacles faced by those seeking sanctuary, from grasping opportunists to unyielding and inhumane bureaucratic systems. Debut author. Age 9-12, Paperback 283pp
