The aim of the book is to open a window into the world of people who are forced to flee their homeland to survive - refugees. The guide to understanding this world is through hearing the words, stories, hopes, expectations, and often, despairs of the refugees themselves. Author Danielle Vella travels from Africa to the Middle East to Europe to the USA to meet and interview refugees and help them tell their stories.
