Ahmed is a 14-year old Syrian boy on a boat with his father, fleeing Aleppo following the bombing of their home, killing the rest of his family. As the sea gets rough, his father and two others try to swim the boat ashore, drowning in the process. On the precipice of being separated from the Syrian family caring for him in Belgium, he is robbed and abandoned by smugglers. Miraculously, he finds his way into the basement of an American ex-pat family, where he hides until he is discovered by the teenage son, Max. Max is miserable in Belgium, attending a school where he does not understand much French, and babysat by a biased biddy. The two form a strong bond, eventually fleeing together to avoid police arrest. I also liked the teenage characters from the school, including the bully and Farah, who help Ahmed, and the local policeman, who grew up in the house being rented by the American family. 4.5 stars.

This book does a nice job of describing the terrible plight of refugees, who will accept them and at what cost in addition to the rampant fears in Europe (an elsewhere) of Muslims, who have different and not well understood beliefs. ( )

12-year-old Max can't believe his parents moved their family to Belgium for a year! And he has to go to a school where they only speak French! While he's busy feeling sorry for himself, 14-year-old Ahmed is fleeing Syria in a boat with his father and other survivors after his mother and sisters were killed in a bombing. As the boat begins to fill with water, his father tries to help everyone and drowns. Ahmed makes it to shore, but hides in a basement (Max's) to avoid being sent back to the horrendous refugee center. When Max discovers Ahmed, he decides to keep his secret, but all around him are people who fear Syrian Muslims and view them all as terrorists. How can he get Ahmed somewhere safe? ( )

Alternates between the story of Max, an American kid whose family moved to Belgium for a year while his dad works on a project with NATO, and Ahmed, a Syrian refugee who believes he's the only surviving member of his family after a civil war.
Ahmed sneaks into the house Max is renting to try to get through the winter and figure out what's next. Max discovers him, befriends him, and tries to help him get into school and have some normalcy and safety in his life.
With the backdrop of anti-Muslim, anti-immigrant, and terrorist attacks in Europe, there is added drama about who will actually help Ahmed.
A moving story, a look at the humanity of helping those in need, and ties to World War II with the history of sheltering and helping Jews.
Thought this was a powerful, touching read. ( )

An amazing story of two boys lives crossing in the most critical of circumstances. Everyone should read this story! ( )
