This book was so good - so much yes!!! This book follows the lives of 3 refugees. Josef and his family are trying to escape Germany right before WWII, Isabel is escaping Cuba in 1994 with her family, and Mahmoud and his family are escaping Syria in 2015. All of them face hardships, danger, death, and are misunderstood. This book was powerful especially in light of how Gratz was able to weave the stories together. Some might find the intersections of stories forced but I found it beautiful and touching. Loved this!
