Reviews

"Spanning a school year, this touching novel in epistolary format relates the triumphs and travails of a young Congolese refugee, Anaïs, and her family. . . . Highly recommended for libraries seeking timely stories about the immigrant experience." --School Library Journal

"Anaïs' epistolary story, told in easy-to-read letters and charming doodles, might be empowering to English-language learners; and middle-graders unfamiliar with such experiences might find new depths of compassion and understanding."--Booklist
