Publisher Comments:

Desmond Morton writes political, military, and industrial relations history. He is the author of many books including A Short History of Canada and When Your Number's Up: Canadian Soldiers and the First World War, Based on a true story, Saoussan and her family flee a war-torn Lebanon, where bombs and gunshots were part of a daily life. Now safe in her new country, Saoussan starts school. But not knowing any English made the simplest things difficult: to go to the washroom, Saoussan would crawl to the door when the teacher's head was turned and wait until someone opened it. Saoussan must adapt to a new culture in a much safer world.
