Product Description
 

Sami and his family are forced to flee their comfortable life in Damascus, via a smuggler's den in Turkey, to an uncertain life beyond. A story of survival, of family, of bravery ... and of how thin the line is between them and us.


Boy, Everywhere chronicles the harrowing journey taken by Sami and his family. From privilege to poverty, across countries and continents, from a comfortable life in Damascus, via a smuggler's den in Turkey, to a prison in Manchester. Once safe in the U.K., Sami is bullied and decides he'd do just about anything to return to Damascus - including, possibly, becoming a stowaway. His is a story of survival, of family, of bravery... and of how thin the line is between them and us. How far would you go to find your way back home?
