Refugee by Alan Gratz
Three young people, separated by continents and decades, search for freedom and refuge from prejudice, religious persecution, and threats of death. Their dangerous journeys and obstacles they must face to achieve refuge are all fueled by the drive for a better tomorrow. Surprising connections will tie their stories together in the end. Gratz is a master at writing historical fiction for young adults and this book is no exception. Timely and well written, it will help young people make sense of today’s refugee crisis.
