Scheherazade's The Thousand and One Nights meets Alan Gratz's Refugee in this important debut novel from a Syrian-American author, Jennifer Zeynab Joukhadar. A 12th century fable about an apprentice mapmaker is interwoven with a modern-day Syrian refugee searching for home, as the plot follows both girls through the Middle East, encountering tremendous dangers and immense acts of kindness. A must-read for teens and adults, this is an incredibly moving and lushly described story of family and friends, meaningful culture, changing landscapes, and universal hope. A staff pick, a Signed First Editions Club pick, and a Forever Young: YA for Adults book club pick.
