Description
Nadia and Saeed are two ordinary young people, attempting to do an extraordinary thing-to fall in love-in a world turned upside down. Their will be a love story but also a story about how we live now and how we might live tomorrow, of a world in crisis and two human beings travelling through it. Civil war has come to the city which Nadia and Saeed call home. Before long they will need to leave their motherland behind-when the streets are no longer useable and the unknown is safer than the known. They will join the great outpouring of people fleeing a collapsing city, hoping against hope, looking for their place in the world . . .

An intriguing read! Great writing!
