Sonita was born in a refugee camp in Pakistan after her family fled Afghanistan during the war in the early 2000s. Unwelcome in Pakistan, her family returns to Afghanistan, where Sonita and her family face new challenges. Interspersed with facts about Afghanistan and its people, this narrative tells a story common to many refugees fleeing the country. Readers will learn about the decades of conflict in Afghanistan and how they can help refugees in their communities and around the world who are struggling to find permanent homes. From School Library Journal: Gr 4–7—First-person stories of refugee experiences are supplemented with comprehensive information about each country's history and the conflicts that have driven people from their homes. Authors objectively describe hardships of war and persecution without sensationalism, and sidebar excerpts from the United Nation's "Rights of the Child" highlight the lack of rights and appalling conditions these children endure. By contrast, the accounts and accompanying photos are somewhat generic, making it hard for readers to connect with the stories. VERDICT A timely but uneven effort that reveals the plight of children affected by the horrors of war; suitable for reports and current events needs.
