Josef’s family is fleeing Nazi Germany, Isabel’s family is trying to leave the riots and unrest of Cuba in 1994, and Mahmoud’s family is escaping the violence of modern – day Syria. Gratz weaves the harrowing journeys of these refugees into an exciting tale that describes the many struggles people face when fleeing their native countries for a better life elsewhere.
