Staff Reviews


A devastatingly and hauntingly beautiful tale that will stay with you for a long time. Magical realism set in war-torn Syria that covers true love, family, dreams, and PTSD. The writing is raw and real and will burrow into your heart in ways you didn't know you needed. If I could give it a 100 stars, it still wouldn't be enough.

— Samantha

I've read a lot of horrifying, sad novels, but this one is monumental and superlative: it's as well written as any Pulitzer winner. It left me angry and in waves of tears, and angrier still that it won't be read by a wider audience because it's Young Adult, still seen as only meant for young women, which far too many don't take seriously. It belongs on a shelf of chefs-d'Ĺ“uvre. Read it.
