Ale's Book Review: Nowhere Boy

Nowhere Boy has been one of the most impactful books I have ever read. The book is about Ahmed, a fourteen-year-old illegal immigrant who lost his family because of a civil war in Syria, and how he ends up living in a stranger’s basement in France. He lived there in secret until Max, a boy around Ahmed’s age, discovered him. Max and Ahmed later become best friends. Max helped Ahmed hide for months, and while they are together, Ahmed would tell Max stories of him escaping and the tragedies he had to endure in his homeland. Max realized that Ahmed never had a normal childhood or a good education because of the civil war. Max then came up with a plan; he made up a fake identity for Ahmed so that he could attend school. This was one of the many things Max did for his friend Ahmed…

Nowhere Boy shows us how two people from different countries, religions, and ethnic backgrounds can become the best of friends. This book also illustrates the immigration problems we currently face around the world. For example, many countries in the Middle East have been at war for years, forcing civilians to find a new country where they could live in safety. This has resulted in an immigration problem for Europe, as many immigrants from the Middle East have fled there in search of a new home. This is the situation Ahmed had to endure, and it is one no person should have to go through. I never found myself bored while reading this book. I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in a good story about friendships and the hardships of life.
