The Waiting Place: When Home Is Lost and a New One Not Yet Found

By Dina Nayeri

Illustrated by Anna Bosch Miralpeix

An unflinching look at ten young lives suspended outside of time – and bravely proceeding anyway – inside the Katsikas refugee camp in Greece.

Every war, famine, and flood spits out survivors. The Waiting Place is an unflinching look at ten young lives suspended outside of time – and bravely proceeding anyway. Each lyrical passage leads the reader from one story to the next, revealing the dreams, ambitions, and personalities of each displaced child. The stories are punctuated by intimate photographs, followed by the author’s reflections on life in a refugee camp. Locking the global refugee crisis sharply in focus, The Waiting Place is an urgent call to change what we teach young people about the nature of home and safety.
