Any reading recommendations?

Books about Migrants.PNG

We've been talking about how reading great stories can help you think about other parts of the world, or connect your own experience to other people's. What stories have you read about people who move between countries? We thought of a few that we liked:

'The Road to Nowhere' by Elizabeth Laird

'The 10pm Question' by Kate de Goldi

'The Silver Sword by Ian Seraillier

'Refugee Boy' by Benjamin Zephaniah

'The Boy in the Back of the Class' by Onjali Q. Raúf

What are your favourites and why?

    What a great idea!

    Eloquent_recipe also recommended 'The Boy in the Back of the Class' in last week's competition so it seems like a must read.

    I would recommend "The Arrival" by Shaun Tan. It's a graphic novel (picture book) about moving to an unknown place and it really conveys the emotions.

      I agree
      The boy at the back of the class is an exceptional book.As soon as I had read the first few chapters I immediately could not put it down.If you’re somebody who loves adventures, then you would love this book.

    I really like The Murderer's Ape, by Jakob Wegelius. The main character lives in a few different countries throughout the story, and the friends she makes in each place make her feel like she is at home there.
