Publisher's Summary

When Jada wakes up in a hospital, the last thing she thinks is that her life has completely changed forever. But when the very real civil war forces her to flee from every open space, she must use the firearm skills her father taught her to reunite with him and protect herself.
Armed with a single gun and a key to an unknown locker, Jada crosses Syria on a journey with a group of children called the Fearless Freedom Fighters. With the leader, Zak, they mount a plan to rescue their fathers while they try to cope with the merciless murders of their families.
As Jada and Zak lead the group together, love blossoms, but with soldiers hot on their tail, they need to stay vigilant in the face of war.

** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **

Jada and Zach are just children...young teens and are thrown into a war of horrific proportions...there loved ones are dead...and they have to lead a group small kids to safety...fighting to stay alive, not starve and not knowing who they can trust...this is set in Syria..which really touched my heart...I loved this story...I did not want to put it down...the narration was super duper great and I highly recommend it!!!
