This story gives three stories of three different refugees in their respective eras. All of them come from different countries and have ha different experiences, however they all struggled as refugees and really gives a first person perspective on what a refugee can go through.

I started this with my kids because my son is doing a novel study on it in school. Then I went ahead and finished it on my own because it’s riveting and I didn’t want to wait. It goes between two stories, one of a boy who’s in the North Tower on 9/11, and the other of a girl in Afghanistan in 2019. It is so expertly woven, and having the two different perspectives and timelines (with distinct parallels) adds so much to the depth of the big picture. I hadn’t talked much with my kids about 9/11 before, but this has been an impactful and helpful tool for discussing it together.… (lisätietoja)

The book focuses on the story of how 9/11 affects two different children; Brandon, an American who goes to work at the World Trade Center with his dad on 9/11, and Rashmina, an Afghan girl who longs for peace and progress in her country, and who comes across an injured American soldier in her village. Both children are forced to take a very hard look at the world around them; Brandon needs to do everything he can to survive once the plane hits the WTC building that he and his dad are in, and Rashmina needs to decide whether helping the injured American soldier is a good idea, or if it will ultimately cost her and her family their own lives. This is a great story because readers are able to see two very different perspectives on what was happening around them on 9/11. In a way, both of them are in danger, either from the terrorist attacks or their own society, and both must learn to navigate world that's not as safe or black and white as they had thought.… (lisätietoja)

Este livro é baseado na vida de Ruth e Jack Gruener. Em 1939, aos 10 anos, Yanek Gruener assiste à invasão da Polônia pelo exército alemão, estopim da Segunda Guerra Mundial. Do início ao fim do conflito, o garoto passa por dez campos de concentração e enfrenta viagens em vagões de gado. Faminto, sujo e subjugado, ele é um exemplo de perseverança. Sua jornada é contada neste tocante relato.
