No Way but Through


Loved it! 😍

A heartbreaking, eye opening story about war and what it’s like to lose everything.

After nuclear attacks destroy America, one family is forced to flee and find themselves in a refugee camp in Mexico. Everything they know is gone and suddenly they are fighting to survive. 

I find the news stories about what’s happening with refugees all over the world upsetting and shocking to say the least. I think it was very brave of the author to write a book based on this problem and to bring awareness to something so tragic. 

The writing was fantastic - the author really knew how to grab your attention and not let go, in a way that pulls you right into the heart of the story.  

The characters were easy to connect and relate to. Character development was effortlessly crafted into the story, allowing us to fall in love with them. It was interesting to read about their backstories and why they are who they are in the story.


I loved the way the author weaved the past and present, allowing us to really get to know the characters and see how the family arrived to this point. 

I recommend this book to anyone who wants to garner fresh insight on the refugee crisis. Someone who wishes to understand the plight of refugees and look into what they go through.
