Review by Jack Peterson.
This book is about a family trapped in the Syrian civil war, a family that is trying to escape Nazi Germany because they are Jewish, and a family attempting to flee from Castro's regime in Cuba. The kid's apartment in Syria is hit by an air strike and their family attempts to flee to Germany. The family in Nazi Germany boards a ship headed off to Cuba. Finally, the family in Cuba boards a boat and sails for America. Will any of them make it? Read the book to find out.

I like this book as it has lots of action in it and never leaves you bored.

I recommend this book to people who don't cry easily and like dangerous situations played out on a piece of paper. Finally, I think this is readable for 5th - 8th
