È l'aprile 1978: sono passati tre anni da quando un misterioso virus ha decimato uno dopo l'altro tutti gli adulti di Berlino. In una città spettrale e decadente, gli unici superstiti sono i ragazzi e le ragazze divisi in gruppi rivali, che ogni giorno lottano per sopravvivere con un'unica certezza: dopo i sedici anni, quando meno se lo aspettano, il virus ucciderà anche loro. Tutto cambia quando qualcuno rapisce il piccolo Theo e lo porta via dall'isola dove viveva con Christa e le ragazze dell'Havel. Per salvare il bambino, Christa ha bisogno dell'aiuto di Jakob e dei suoi compagni di Gropiusstadt: insieme dovranno attraversare una Berlino fantasma fino all'aeroporto di Tegel, covo del più violento gruppo della città. Là, i fuochi che salgono nella notte confondono le luci con le ombre, il bene con il male, la vita con la morte. E quando sorgerà l'alba del nuovo giorno, Jakob e Christa non saranno più gli stessi. «Tutto l'amore che vorremmo lasciare sulla terra, dietro di noi, prima di morire, è difficile chiuderlo dentro delle parole.»

When his family moves to the Texas Hill Country, though, Peter finds a tranquil, natural valley where he can, at last, hear himself think. There, he meets a girl his age: Annie Blythe. Annie tells Peter she’s a “wish girl.” But Annie isn’t just any wish girl; she’s a “Make-A-Wish Girl.” And in two weeks she will begin a dangerous treatment to try and stop her cancer from spreading. Left alone, the disease will kill her. But the treatment may cause serious, lasting damage to her brain. Annie and Peter hatch a plan to escape into the valley, which they begin to think is magical. But the pair soon discovers that the valley—and life—may have other plans for them. And sometimes wishes come true in ways they would never expect.

At the age of ten, Enaiatollah Akbari was left alone to fend for himself. This is the heartbreaking, unforgettable story of his journey from Afghanistan to Italy in an attempt to find a safe place to live.

Meanwhile on the other side of the city, Tamar, a talented singer with a lonely, tempestuous soul, undertakes an equally unpromising mission: to rescue a young drug addict from the Jerusalem underworld ... and, eventually, to find her dog.
