Reviews

"There is humor, tenderness, despair, outrage, and tenacity... This is a poignant and powerful collection of universal themes embedded with cultural specificity."--Booklist *starred review*

"Alsaid edits an extraordinary anthology featuring exquisite writing and offering a genuinely diverse collection on the richly layered topic of immigration. International in scope, the cross-section of voices is refreshingly diverse while also unified by emotional vulnerability.... [D]eeply relevant to our contemporary world. A must-have antidote to xenophobia and a much-needed, compassionate mirror for many."--Kirkus Reviews *starred review*

"[E]ach contribution provides a snapshot of the many meanings the word "home" can evoke, making for a thought-provoking read. Authors' notes interspersed throughout lend autobiographical richness to the memorable anthology." -Publishers Weekly, starred review

"These stories highlight the literal and emotional journeys of immigration, while also offering cultural views of travel, government, and geography. Readers will experience the joys, heartbreaks, struggles, and triumphs of the families depicted."--School Library Journal
