Last year, Alan Gratz (the author of Prisoner 8-3087) came out with a book called Refugee. It is about three kids from completely different time frames each with one goal in mind: escape. The first kid, Josef Landau, 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. The second kid, Isabel Fernandez, is a Cuban girl living in 1994. With riots and unrest plaguing her county, she and her family set out a raft hoping to find safety in America. Last, but certainly not least, is Mahmoud Bishara. He 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. In the end, everything connects in an unexpected ways that I won’t spoil here.
