's review

it was amazing

Thank you Amy Einhorn and Flatiron Books for gifting this advance copy at our Booktopia session. This is a must read for all, especially in our current political time. Jeanine Cummins tells us the story of a mother and son fleeing from their home, from their country into a journey for their life. I felt I was running, hiding, thirsty and hungry right along the characters. Each person you meet on this life and death journey you will never, ever forget. My stomach was in knots hoping our characters would make it over the border into the US, into safety and a new life.
I will never forget these characters. I will see these characters as I watch the news with a heavier heart.
(This book won't be out until January 2020)
