Welcome to Nowhere

By Elizabeth Laird



Is a powerful and beautifully written story about the life of one family caught up in civil war. Twelve-year-old Omar and his brothers and sisters were born and raised in the beautiful and bustling city of Bosra, Syria. But his brother gets mixed up with the wrong crowd and then civil war breaks out and his family have to look for a new home.
