Waterstones Says

Told with unflinching honesty and courage, Boy, Everywhere documents the refugee experience as a well-to-do Syrian family endure hardship and incarceration on the journey to beginning a new life.

Shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize Older Readers Prize 2021

This debut middle-grade novel chronicles the harrowing journey taken by Sami and his family from privilege to poverty, across countries and continents, from a comfortable life in Damascus, via a smuggler's den in Turkey, to a prison in Manchester.

A story of survival, of family, of bravery ... In a world where we are told to see refugees as the 'other', this story will remind readers that 'they' are also 'us'.
