Starting in 2011, refugees flood out of war-torn Syria. The surprising flood of victims overwhelms neighbouring countries, and chaos follows. Resentment in host nations heightens, as disruption and the cost of aid grows. By 2017, many want to turn their backs on the victims. The refugees are the unwanted.
Don Brown depicts moments of both heartbreaking horror and hope in the ongoing Syrian refugee crisis. Shining a light on the stories of the survivors, The Unwanted offers a testament to the courage and resilience of the refugees and a call to action for all those who read.
In the tradition of two-time Sibert honor winner Don Brown's critically acclaimed, full-colour non-fiction graphic novels The Great American Dust Bowl and Drowned City, The Unwanted is an important, timely, and eye-opening exploration of the ongoing Syrian refugee crisis, exposing the harsh realities of living in, and trying to escape from, a war zone.
