Powerful and tragic. I'm crying. ( )

Ebo and his brother, Kwame, live in abject poverty in Niger and decide to flee to Europe for a better life. Along the way through dangerous cities, the desert and the Mediterranean Ocean, they work, starve, and combat illness. The plight of humanity fleeing for their lives is well researched and heart breaking.

12 year-old Ebo realizes that his older brother, Kwame, has left their village in Ghana to go to Europe where their older sister, Sisi, headed several months ago, and decides to follow. This graphic novel is pretty graphic about the plight of refugees as Ebo has three arduous trips: first to get to the big city by himself to find Kwame, then to cross the arid Sahara desert to get to Tripoli, and finally, to find a seaworthy vessel to cross the dangerous waters of the Mediterranean. Unlike other refugee stories, this was not about the inhospitable reception upon arrival, but the unscrupulous traffickers who prey on them. Ebo's singing voice and cheerfulness carry him far.

There were two things about the book, which I did not like so much. The shifting back and forth in time was not well done, and I don't think the reasons for their pilgrimage were explained, other than wanting a better life in Europe. Nice collaboration, and well illustrated. ( )

diverse children's middlegrade graphic novel (young refugees from various parts of Africa undertake dangerous journeys across desert and ocean to reach Europe; many die along the way and the main characters (Ebo, his older brother Kwame, and another friend they meet along the way) narrowly survive at least a dozen times in their journey.

Copied from the back cover: His brother, Kwame, has disappeared, and Ebo knows it can only be to attempt the hazardous journey to Europe, and a better life--the same journey their sister embarked on months ago. But Ebo refuses to be left behind in Ghana. Ebo's epic quest takes him across the Sahara Desert to the dangerous streets of Tripoli, and finally out to the merciless sea. But with every step, he holds on to his hope for a new life and a reunion with his family. This powerfully moving graphic novel--by bestselling author Eoin Calfer and the team behind the Artemis Fowl graphic novels--explores the current plight of immigrants searching for a new beginning.
