Based on the experiences of real Syrian families, A Dangerous Crossing is a story of bravery and solidarity in the face of despair.

Product Description

Ghalib doesn’t want to leave his home, but Syria has become too dangerous, and his family has no choice but to flee. Together they start out on a terrible journey that leads them through dark and dangerous places. They come under fire; they are fleeced by illegal border-breakers; they experience the wretched and hopeless life of a refugee camp. And they still have to face the perils of a voyage in a boat that is far from seaworthy.

Based on the experiences of real Syrian families, A Dangerous Crossing is a story of bravery and solidarity in the face of despair.

Endorsed by Amnesty International.

Cover design by Steve Doogan.

PRAISE FOR A DANGEROUS CROSSING

‘I now understand the Syrian refugee crisis like never before. I walked in young Ghalib’s fresh white runners from the refugee camp, I was thrown back by the bomb blast that hit his town, I wept his tears, felt his frustration and anger. There’s nothing like a great novel to make the world come alive. An important book, a necessary book, but above all, a brilliantly told story.’ – Sarah Webb, author and children’s books commentator

’emotional and revealing … A difficult story handled with sensitivity and insight’ – Lancashire Post
