Old Barn Books

Boy, Everywhere chronicles the harrowing journey taken by Sami and his family. From privilege to poverty, across countries andconHnents, from a comfortable life in Damascus, via a smuggler's den in Turkey, toa prison in Manchester. Once safe in the U.K., Sami is bullied and decides he'd do just about anything to return to Damascus -including, possibly, becoming a stowaway. His is a story of survival, of family, of bravery... and of how thin the line is between "them" and "us".
