About the Book: Nujeen: One Girls Incredible Journey from War-torn Syria in a Wheelchair
An inspiring tale of modern migration, overcoming adversity and escaping the hell of war, from a girl struggling to walk for the very first time in her life.
Nujeen Mustafa has cerebral palsy. This did not stop her travelling, with her sister, 4000 miles from Syria to Hungary in a wheelchair. Having taught herself to speak English by watching US soap-operas on Syrian TV, she made her way to the Hungarian border in the hope of asylum in Germany, where she has told her story, with Christina Lamb -bestselling co-author of I Am Malala. A 16-year-old Syrian girl, she has the courage of a lion.
A strong, extraordinary voice, Nujeen tells the story of what its really like to be a refugee, to have grown up through war and left a beloved homeland to become dependent on others. It tells how the Syrian war has destroyed a proud nation and torn families apart in the face of international indifference by leaders scarred by previous interventions, and the incredible bravery of a person determined to keep smiling. It is the story of our times told through one remarkable girl.
