Dear World: A Syrian Girl’s Story of War and Plea for Peace is a new book from 8-year-old author and Syrian refugee Bana Alabed. Released this week with a signing by Alabed in New York City, Dear World tells the story of war-torn Aleppo from a different and unique perspective.
In Bana’s own words, and featuring short, affecting chapters by her mother, Fatemah, Dear World is not just a gripping account of a family endangered by war; it offers a uniquely intimate, child’s perspective on one of the biggest humanitarian crises in history. Bana has lost her best friend, her school, her home, and her homeland. But she has not lost her hope—for herself and for other children around the world who are victims and refugees of war and deserve better lives. Dear World is a powerful reminder of the resilience of the human spirit, the unconquerable courage of a child, and the abiding power of hope. It is a story that will leave you changed.
