City of Jasmine, by Olga Grjasnowa, Katy Derbyshire (Translator)
A poignant story of three young adults trying to make a future for themselves in war-torn Damascus.
Syria - a country at war. Amal, Hammoudi and Youssef are young and ambitious, the face of modern Syria. But when civil war tears through their homeland, they are left with a horrifying choice: risk death by staying in the country they love, or flee in search of a new life elsewhere?
From one of Germany's most talented literary voices comes this intricately woven story of brutality, loss, and how hope can shine through when darkness feels overwhelming.
