Night falls for the three million Syrians waiting in refugee camps in Turkey. As they lie on rocky ground some of them dream of home, some of the day they’ll be reunited with their families, and some, like Ayamin, are sick of dreaming.
Seventeen, on her own, and hungry for more, Ayamin packs her tent and sets off on foot across the Mediterranean and Europe in search of a place to call home. But then she meets a hard-headed plot twist named Danny Frey. Danny’s a juvenile delinquent from England, sent to Turkey to help out at the camps. He doesn’t like rules, and he doesn’t like the idea of Ayamin taking on the whole of Europe on her own.
A kids’ tent, two pairs of worn boots, a flipped boat, a storm of tear gas, a field of lavender, a sunrise train ride, an angry conductor, a guitar-playing hobo, a hemp loving Irishman, a chess-playing churchgoer, and the police forces of four countries make for one epic journey.
This is the paperback version of Syria Girl, by young Kiwi author Elijah Hill. Syria Girl is also available on Kindle, Kobo, and Book Depository.
