From the publisher

'An incredible book. Profoundly affecting and deeply soulful. This book will stay with me forever.' Ruth Jones, No.1 Sunday Times bestselling author

I don't know how you've made it this far . . .

Sami's childhood is much like any other - school with his friends, dinners with his family, playing with his pets (stray cats and dogs, and the turtle he keeps on the roof).

But with Syria at war with itself, nothing is really normal. And Sami's hopes for a better future are about to be ripped away.

Inspired by extraordinary true events, The Stray Cats of Homs is the breathtaking story of a young man who will do anything to keep the dream of home alive.

'An absolutely riveting novel and a searing and incredibly important book. Storytelling at its best.' Donal Ryan

'Warm, captivating and inspiring.' Mike Thomson, author of Syria's Secret Library

'Compelling and uncompromising' BBC Radio 4, Sunday
