A New York Times bestseller!

JOSEF is a Jewish boy living in 1930s Nazi Germany. With the threat of concentration camps looming, he and his family board a ship bound for the other side of the world . . .

ISABEL is a Cuban girl in 1994. With riots and unrest plaguing her country, she and her family set out on a raft, hoping to find safety in America . . .

MAHMOUD is a Syrian boy in 2015. With his homeland torn apart by violence and destruction, he and his family begin a long trek toward Europe . . .

All three kids go on harrowing journeys in search of refuge. All will face unimaginable dangers -- from drownings to bombings to betrayals. But there is always the hope of tomorrow. And although Josef, Isabel, and Mahmoud are separated by continents and decades, shocking connections will tie their stories together in the end.

This action-packed novel tackles topics both timely and timeless: courage, survival, and the quest for home.

Beautiful book

I’m in the sevenths grade and I love this book. It can get confusing at times when you’re not paying attention to who the chapter is talking about but once you get used to it after three or four chapters it’s one of the best books you’ll ever read. At times it can be very sad and at times it can be very heartwarming. To the people who have the privilege to read this book we were fortunate that we are not in different harsh time and situations like these three children.
