Book of the Month
This month one of my favorite reads was the Lone Star Nominee Refugee by Alan Gratz. I have been meaning to get to this book for ages and I am glad I finally got a chance to listen to the audio book. Refugee follows the story lines of three different children seeking asylum from the countries of their birth. Josef, a Jewish German escapes Nazi Germany in 1930, Isabel, a Cuban girl, flees Castro’s Cuba in 1994, and Mahmoud, a Syrian boy flees his war torn country in 2015. All three stories are told realistically and will pull at your heart strings while giving you plenty of food for thought. I highly recommend this title as a must not miss!
