Zafir

Six months after Zafir has moved to Homs from Dubai with his parents, the excitement of living in a new city has worn off. But then he sees a body thrown from a moving car, and when no one stops to help – and he’s told to forget what he’s seen – he realises there’s a lot he doesn’t understand about life in Syria. A lot that no one will tell him. Soon after, the campaign for revolution in Syria begins, and Zafir’s parents argue about their country’s future. Things get worse when his father is arrested and his mother must leave Homs. As the conflict in the city escalates, everyday life becomes dangerous for a boy alone. Will Zafir find a way to be reunited with his friends and family?

A gripping story of one child’s experience of the civil war in Syria, written by Prue Mason.

Part of the absorbing Through My Eyes series, which provides insight into the problems and difficulties experienced by children in disaster stricken areas, war zones and other terrifying places around the world.
