American Refuge


Isaac is a middle schooler who lives his life without worrying much about the rest of the world. One day, Khadel, a young refugee, arrives at his school. At first, Isaac can’t be bothered with the new kid. But then a playground incident forces him to take a good look inside his privileged life. This book is a cry for empathy, a plea to welcome others’ differences with understanding, and a sharp reminder that all kids deserve a fair shot at a great future. Because growing up in peace should be a childhood right, not a privilege.
