A migrant's trail: First stop Germany, then the moonShe tackled the grueling 2,000-kilometer migrant trail in a wheelchair. Now living safely in Germany, the 17-year-old has set herself a new goal.Mustafa's book, "Nujeen," starts with the early days of the Syrian war and the escalating violence that made it too dangerous for the family to stay.There are moments of levity and solidarity, too, as when fellow migrants help lift Mustafa's wheelchair over obstacles and volunteers offer them lifts.Mustafa says she'd barely left her fifth-floor Aleppo apartment before, so she sees much of the monthlong journey as an adventure. Mustafa is going to school for the first time.Mustafa says the hardening tone hasn't changed her high opinion of Germans, whom she praises as very hard-working and punctual.Mustafa is still waiting for formal asylum approval to come through.In the meantime Mustafa is determined to make the most of her new life in the flat she shares with her two sisters and her sister's children.
