This moving, true story about a young man and his dog who escape the Syrian War shows readers how love endures beyond borders.
Life for Bassel and his dog Stella in Damascus, Syria, is full of bombs toppling buildings and sharp blasts of gunfire through the night. When it becomes too dangerous for him to stay, Bassel makes the courageous decision to escape, leaving his home—and Stella—behind.
After a long, difficult journey, Bassel lands safely in Belgium, but misses his family and his beloved dog. With the help of friends in his new home and back in Syria, Bassel crafts a plan to rescue Stella. It will be risky, but for Bassel, home is wherever Stella is.
This remarkable, true story will inspire readers and remind them that even amid the harshest circumstances of war, acts of kindness and humanity will always endure.
