Read full description of the books:
This is the story of a young Sudanese boy, one of the "Lost Boys," who comes to the U.S. to live with his aunt and cousin and tries to adjust to life in a new land. Things like snow and American food are new, he barely knows the language, and, above all, he's anxious that they find his mother in a refugee camp and send her to be with him.
I think anyone reading this book is bound to come away with a new appreciation for the courage it takes to emigrate to a new place, especially after experiencing war and trauma. I don't think I'll ever look at the ESL students in our college the same way. They need to be made to feel welcome, and helped to adjust, not laughed at and scorned as some of the students in the school in this book did. We take our freedoms and the abundance of food and other necessities here for granted. This book lets us see all of it through the eyes of someone who had so little. I HIGHLY recommend this book to young and old!
