   Wonderfully told but ...
I've enjoyed finding a book that educated my son about refugees. We listened to the audiobook while having the hardcover, as this is my son's preference. It was accurate and very well-written with respect to the difficulties faced by the refugees. I know because I used to be a social worker and I worked specifically with the refugee community. My only problem with the book is that it is not suitable for children between the ages of 9-12. The content is much too mature for me. I am 50 and I was triggered and horrified. Probably the audio production made it worse, but it was emotionally challenging and then SPOILER below... One of the children does not make it. Realistic, but IMO inappropriate for this age group.

   A must read
This book should be placed on every book list in school. I read it because it resonated with me. I am a Cuban refugee, so it brought back memories I had put away, but it was time to bring them out. Alan Gratz - Danke!

   My 7th grader loved it!
My daughter picked this book off a list for required reading at school. She is a bit of a history enthusiast and loved this book absolutely! Since then, she has read another book by the same author.

   Amazing Story !!!
I loved this story absolutely ''. My school has it as one of their literary choices and I wanted to read it before giving the story to any of my students. I was blown away at how well it is written. If you get the chance to listen to the story through Audible, the readers were awesome. In many parts of the story, they had me on the edge of my seat.

   Timely read
This book purchased to participate in the 2018 Global Read Aloud competition. This was an excellent follow-up to the last year's A Long Walk to Water. The triple narrative is executed excellently. This story of three young refugees from different times, places and backgrounds is woven together expertly to tell the story of countless inidividuals seeking a place of refuge. This book will help students understand some of the reasons why individuals and families leave their homelands and face the hardships of those refugees. This is another resource to help develop empathetic and knowledge of global citizens.

   Great Read
This book was bought for my daughter's summer reading requirement when our local library was out of it. She thoroughly enjoyed it and the book opened conversations between us in regards to world history, compassion and thankfulnessgratefulness. In this respect, we both benefited from the book.

   This is an amazing book that everyone should/must read
This is an excellent book that everyone should read. I read it to my two sons, who were captivated by the text and content. Refugee is actually an image of what is currently happening and has been happening throughout history to refugees around the world. These stories could be imaginary, though they have real characters, but the situations are all too plausible. It opens our eyes to their odysseys and their redemption and to what we need to do as humans around the world to help them. Many people forget that some of their ancestors were once refugees themselves!

   Great job Mr
One of my students forgot this book one afternoon in my classroom. I couldn t put it down! Probably not since I read, Number the Stars, have I been more moved and absorbed in a story that is both touching and relevant. I hope to raise funds to buy a class set and study it next year with my classes. Great job, Mr Gratz, and thank you Karley for forgetting your library book.
