The Banner, 08/04/17

Bookdragon, Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center, 04/17

“A timely, powerful piece of nonfiction, this is a first purchase for most collections.” 

School Library Journal, *starred review, 04/17

“Gut-punch of a volume . . . offers an affecting perspective on the plight of refugees and emphasizes that this human-rights crisis is an ongoing, urgent issue.” 

Booklist, *starred review, 04/15/17

“Harrowing, wrenching, and hopeful.” 

Publishers Weekly, *starred review, 03/27/17

“An important and powerful book that is sure to spark discussion about the refugee crisis. A must have purchase for school and public libraries.”

CM Reviews, 09/15/17

“The format helps a great deal as well as the overall layout that appeared somewhat like a newsletter, chunking the information into bite-size pieces that even the more reluctant readers would be drawn to read.”

Gathering Books, 11/28/17

“It’s hard not to be moved by the sagas of these adolescents desperate to find a better life.”

Cooperstown Crier, 11/16/17

“Should be shared in late middle and high school classrooms.”

“A wonderful addition to a unit of study on refugees, immigration, and/or multiculturalism.” 

Green Teacher, Winter/19
