it was amazing

This is an intense, raw, and often vividly emotional story from the perspective of a young girl in Aleppo. I thought that Senzai cleverly toggled between chapters leading up to the events and chapters of Nadia's escape to Turkey. Once I started reading the book, I couldn't put it down. I applaud Senzai for writing on this topic and helping to educate young people about these historical and current events, and atrocities of war occurring in this decade.

The publisher lists this book for 8-12 year olds. I would be hesitant to put this book in the hands of just any child below grade 5 as I feel that there is a level of emotional maturity needed to handle the content of these types of books. As a read-aloud, this book could be an intense and rich title for exploring history and current events.

Highly recommended.
