Nuri is from Syria and lives at a home for asylum seekers. Calvin lives just a few doors down the road and is a member of a right-wing teenage gang. When the two meet each other, Nuri tells him about her native village on the edge of the desert and how beautiful it was, but that then the wings of evil swooped down and cast their shadow across the land. The more Calvin learns about the girl with the dark eyes, the more he falls in love with her. Calvin decides to leave his gang – but getting away from his old friends isn’t so easy.
A moving love story amid social conflict, full of poetry and beauty. A painfully frank portrait of society with a Romeo and Juliet story all its own.

“With deep insight Peer Martin depicts the ground on which hatred grows, and in precise detail he describes the mechanisms at work within the group. This makes the story credible. But Martin’s novel is much more than an educational work. It is gripping and moving, and it takes its life from characters one does not want to be parted from.” Neue Zürcher Zeitung

“A multilayered book that makes the reader sit up and think; an incitement to resist every form of Neo-Nazism.” (Büchermagazin 04/2015) | 16 +

Martin, Peer (Author) Andersen, Nils (Illustrator)

When everything has been taken from you, you have nothing to lose. Nineteen-year-old Canadian Mathis accompanies Hope, an 11-year-old Somali, as he flees right across South America. The two have barely set out, when two shady characters start following them – and they are not the only threat to confront Hope and Mathis on their breath-taking journey. As they travel through the Amazon rainforest, across the Panamericana highway and on the roof of a high-speed goods train speeding along, death lurks in the shadows on all sides; they barely escape with their lives on more than one occasion. Will the pair make it to freedom?
