Kid View: Refugee by Alan Gratz
Refugee is an amazing middle grades/young adult book that blew me away. I had been wanting to read it for a long time and then it was chosen for my school book club so I got a copy. OH MY GOSH! It is one of the best books I read all year! I love the way everything tied together in the end and it showed what friendship and family truly means. It really gave me a clear view into other people’s lives and how even now this stuff is still going on around us even if we don’t realize it at first. I really appreciate this book and I am so glad I found the time to read it.
I would say Refugee is best for ages 11 and up and I think that even if you’re an adult you would still very much enjoy it. The book is about three kids who are living in a time where their home country is not safe for some reason or another. They are forced to flee on dangerous paths because they believe that there are better places and times ahead. It is a very moving story and I can guarantee you will not forget it.
Other books you might know by Alan Gratz are Prisoner B-3087 and Ban This Book, but don’t worry there are more!
