Summary
Dawit's future was bleak in his home country of Eritrea, where he would be forced to join the military. Along with a friend, he makes the difficult decision to flee his home and meet with relatives in Europe. After a dangerous journey and months spent in a refugee camp, Dawit faces challenges in his new home Amsterdam. Interspersed with facts about Eritrea and its people, this narrative tells a story common to many refugees fleeing the country. Readers will learn about the conflict there and how they can help refugees in their communities and around the world who are struggling to find permanent homes
