Marwan is a young boy on a journey he never intended to take, bound for a place he doesn’t know. His journey relies on courage and memories of his homeland to buoy him up. Along with him are thousands of other people, crossing the deserts and the seas, fleeing war and hunger in search of safety. Marwan must take one step after another... taking whatever he can carry, holding on to dreams for a peaceful future. This is the journey of one boy who longs for a home, who walks with uncertainty and hopes for a peaceful future.
Illustrated in a wonderfully bold, childlike style, this is a beautiful, heartfelt story that gives a human face to the plight of refugees all over the world.
