Omar and his younger brother, Hassan, have spent most of their lives in Dadaab, a refugee camp in Kenya. Life is hard there: never enough food, achingly dull, and without access to the medical care Omar knows his nonverbal brother needs. So when Omar has the opportunity to go to school, he knows it might be a chance to change their future . . . but it would also mean leaving his brother, the only family member he has left, every day.

Heartbreak, hope, and gentle humor exist together in this graphic novel about a childhood spent waiting, and a young man who is able to create a sense of family and home in the most difficult of settings. It's an intimate, important, unforgettable look at the day-to-day life of a refugee, as told to New York Times Bestselling author/artist Victoria Jamieson by Omar Mohamed, the Somali man who lived the story.

 

奧馬爾和他的弟弟哈桑大部分時間都在肯亞的難民營達達阿布度過。那裡的生活艱困:食物不足且無聊至極,而且得不到他不會說話的弟弟所需的醫療照護。因此,當奧馬爾有機會上學時,他知道這可能是改變他們未來的機會。 。 。 但去上學也意味著他每天都得離開唯一的親人--弟弟。
 
這本揉合了傷心,希望和軟幽默的圖畫小說,講述的是一個充滿等待的童年,以及一位能夠在艱困環境中營造家庭氣氛的青年。故事由書中主角,一位索馬利族男子奧馬爾•穆罕默德,口述給《紐約時報》暢銷作家兼藝術家維多利亞•傑米森的親身經歷,它提供了一位難民日常生活中親密、重要、且難忘的印象。
