Description
When Iran's government threatens Zahra's family for speaking out against its actions, they decide to flee Iran and seek safety in Australia. The journey isn't easy. Many refugees have died on the boat trip across the Indian Ocean. Granted asylum after many months of waiting, Zahra and her family must adjust to a new life. Interspersed with facts about Iran and its people, this narrative tells a story common to many refugees fleeing the country. Readers will learn about the conflict there and how they can help refugees in their communities and around the world who are struggling to find permanent homes.
