The Map of Salt and Stars

Forthcoming in 2018 from Touchstone (Simon & Schuster)

The Map of Salt and Stars tells the fictional story of a Syrian girl who flees with her family as a refugee across seven countries of the Middle East and North Africa in a desperate and dangerous search for safety—a journey that intertwines with the story of fabled mapmakers who made the same journey nine hundred years before in their quest to map the world.
