Editorial Reviews


"A modern-day Anne Frank.... just a year after she began tweeting, she has published a book, Dear World, out Tuesday, that tells the story of a young life circumscribed by war—a life where schools are bombed, friends die, parents are taken away for days at a time, food and water are scarce (if available at all), and a trip to the playground is a distant memory."–The New York Post


"Told from a child's perspective, the story is stripped down to its simplest elements, throwing the tragedy of the thing into sharp relief."–Glamour/The Girl Project


"She continues to tell her painful yet hopeful story in Dear a fuller picture of how their family, along with many others, have been affected by the ongoing war."–Bustle


"A harrowing memoir of life under unadulterated account of war through the eyes of a child."–REUTERS

About the Author

Bana Alabed, born in 2009 in Aleppo, Syria, is known worldwide for her tweets during the siege of the city in 2016 and for her subsequent calls for peace and an end to all global conflict. Her tweets have earned her legions of admirers around the world by giving a remarkable insight into the daily horrors of life in the city, including airstrikes, hunger, and the prospect of her family’s death. In December 2016, Bana and her family were safely evacuated from Aleppo to Turkey. When she grows up, Bana would like to become a teacher, like her mother. Her father is a lawyer, and she has two younger brothers, Noor and Mohamed. Dear World is her first book.
