Escape from Aleppo: 06/17/19
Escape from Aleppo by N.H. Senzai begins on Nadia's twelfth birthday. She is expecting a fun night with family until that is all taken away by a frantic call from her uncle. They watch the news, horrified. It's the start of the Arab Spring.
Nadia's family decides to flee Aleppo. In the mayhem, she is separated from her family and needs to do everything she can to survive and to make the rendezvous point.
The narrative and details are inspired by actual events. There are some heart stopping moments but Nadia is resourceful. She finds others who can help and manages to navigate the terrors of civil war that are transforming her city into an unrecognizable landscape.
For reluctant readers, I will tell you it has a happy ending, at least for Nadia and her family.
