'The Journey' is both deeply moving and informative. Abdul gives a detailed account of what he remembers of his experiences fleeing his home at age seven and living as a migrant in several countries in an attempt to find safety. His ability to survive the most horrifying events is astounding, and despite the most traumatic events he can still reflect on his life and recognise the generosity of others.
I shall be recommending the book to friends. I am sure it will raise readers' awareness of the plight of migrants and the ordeals they face. Hopefully it will help many people to become more welcoming to people seeking refuge and a safer, better life in our country.
