"We get a crash course in history and geopolitics as Kroger dramatizes how the refugees are treated by strangers ranging from tourists to the authorities. Her rich canvas includes sweeping commentary on a range of global hot-button topics, including Assad's Syria and the complicity of policemen in the violence in Gujarat, India. Quick transitions between different points of view keep the story hopping while allowing readers multiple perspectives as the story unfolds. Kroger demonstrates great dexterity in resolving plot twists, even acknowledging the absence of easy solutions." —Booklist
