Homes: A Refugee Story

Author(s): Abu Bakr al Rabeeah, Winnie Yeung

Gone Fishing

In 2010, the al Rabeeah family left their home in Iraq in hope of a safer life. They moved to Homs, in Syria ' just before the Syrian civil war broke out.  Abu Bakr, one of eight children, was ten years old when the violence began on the streets around him: car bombings, attacks on his mosque and school, firebombs late at night. Homes tells of the strange juxtapositions of growing up in a war zone: horrific, unimaginable events punctuated by normalcy ' soccer, cousins, video games, friends.  Homes is the remarkable true story of how a young boy emerged from a war zone ' and found safety in Canada ' with a passion for sharing his story and telling the world what is truly happening in Syria. As told to her by Abu Bakr al Rabeeah, writer Winnie Yeung has crafted a heartbreaking, hopeful, and urgently necessary book that provides a window into understanding Syria.
