'Deeply empathetic, Boy Everywhere is essential reading. Once started, it is not easy to put down; once finished, it's not easy to forget' - North Somerset Teacher's Award 

 13 Year-old Sami loves his friends, football, PlayStation and iPad. But a bombing in a shopping mall changes his life. Sami and his family flee their comfortable home in Damascus to make the perilous and painful journey towards a new life in the UK.

Leaving everything behind, Sami discovers a world he'd never encountered – harsh, dangerous, but also at times unexpectedly kind and hopeful.
