Ataui and her family live in South Sudan. They have never known what safety feels like. When she and two siblings leave their home, they don t know that they will never return. After spending many years in a refugee camp, Ataui arrives as a refugee in Canada, where she faces new challenges. Interspersed with facts about South Sudan and its people, this narrative tells a story common to many refugees fleeing the country. Readers will learn about the conflict there and how they can help refugees in their communities and around the world who are struggling to find permanent homes.
