... einfach zu lesen und eine gute Geschichte!
Ich persönlich (auf dem Gymnasium in der 12.Klasse) musste kein Wort nachschlagen.. Es war leicht verständlich bzw aus dem Kontext erkennbar..
Auch das Thema fand ich gut. Man liest nicht immer Bücher über das Thema Immigration.
Was ich auch toll fand war, dass die Autorin reale Ereignisse als Vorlage für das Buch genommen hat.

Great bookReviewed in the United States on 23 November 2020
The book touches a lot about how the Muslim culture struggled after the case of 9/11 and the discrimination that they had to go through during that time. The book takes you into the life of a family that is going through the struggles of immigration and how they are trying to make a better life for themselves. The book shows the very rough patches that they go through with poverty as well. In the end, I think this book would be a very good read to young adults to teach them about discrimination and racism that is going on throughout the world and see a different side of what people from other countries have to go though to have the same luxuries and joys as other Americans.
Excellent ReadReviewed in the United States on 11 May 2017
This is a story that will get everyone thinking and analyzing American culture and beliefs. This Muslim family feels they need to seek asylum in Canada because they are in the U.S. illegally. Like many, they entered the country legally and just stayed beyond the expiration of their visas. This story of how many people live in this country is both sad and hopeful throughout. It is certainly a read I recommend to all middle and high school age students.

Lesson LearnedReviewed in the United States on 26 August 2016
My son had to read this book for school, this would be his first grade of the school year. He was struggling keeping interested in the book, so I read the book myself. I think the book was really good. Nadira of course became my favorite character. Her strength, love and respect for her family...... Wonderful.
