Fourteen-year-old Ahmed is stuck in a city that wants nothing to do with him. Newly arrived in Brussels, Belgium, Ahmed fled a life of uncertainty and suffering in Aleppo, Syria, only to lose his father on the perilous journey to the shores of Europe. Now Ahmed’s struggling to get by on his own, but with no one left to trust and nowhere to go, he’s starting to lose hope.
Then he meets Max, a thirteen-year-old American boy from Washington, D.C. Lonely and homesick, Max is struggling at his new school and just can’t seem to do anything right. But with one startling discovery, Max and Ahmed’s lives collide and a friendship begins to grow. Together, Max and Ahmed will defy the odds, learning from each other what it means to be brave and how hope can change your destiny.
Set against the backdrop of the Syrian refugee crisis, award-winning author of Jepp, Who Defied the Stars Katherine Marsh delivers a gripping, heartwarming story of resilience, friendship and everyday heroes. Barbara O'Connor, author of Wish and Wonderland, says "Move Nowhere Boy to the top of your to-be-read pile immediately."
Lo que no sabe es que allí vive Max, un chico estadounidense de 13 años que se ha trasladado junto a su familia a Bruselas. Cuando Max descubre a Ahmed, decide mantener el secreto y poco a poco se verán embarcados en una épica historia donde deberán tomar decisiones morales y riesgos personales, en el contexto de una Europa marcada por los atentados yihadistas, la crisis de los refugiados y el miedo al otro, especialmente a los musulmanes.
When in an attempt to impress Cora, Jack takes her on a date to the edge of the underworld, he ends up making a fatal mistake. Now, if there's any chance of saving Cora, nevermind himself, Jack will need the help of his old friend Euri and the city's colorful cast of spirits.
By turns heartrending and hillarious, this page-turning sequel to The Night Tourist expertly weaves the myth of Persephone and Demeter with a contemporary tale of love, loss and eternal friendship.
"Readers should be drawn in by the complex relationships between Marsh's protagonists and Jack's continuing existential struggles, caught between the worlds of the living and the dead."
—Publishers Weekly, starred review
"The plot is lavishly draped with snappy dialogue, realistic teen characters and clever didn't-see-it-coming twists. An outstanding story with wide appeal."
"The allusions to ancient gods may draw fans of Rick Riordan's popular series Percy Jackson and the Olympians. However, the dark humor and poignant exchanges between the dead and living put this novel closer in tone and sensibility to The Graveyard Book, by Neil Gaiman. Like that Newbery winner, The Twilight Prisoner will keep kids reading late into the balmy nights ahead."
—Washington Post Book World Summer Reading Guide
