I read this graphic novel in audio form after I saw it recommended because of the excellent full-cast recording. The book is the true story of two Somalian boys who lived in a Kenyan refugee camp for years. Omar, the eldest, feels responsible for his young, mute brother. They live with their foster mother, struggle to go to school, get an interview with the UN to be placed in a new country, and to find peace when the world is completely out of their control. The audio was excellent, but I do feel like I missed out on not seeing the artwork.

"In a refugee camp life is always the same, except when it isn't." ( )

It’s a memoir in graphic novel format, and I love how bright and vivid the colors are.⁠

Omar and his brother have been living in a refugee camp in Kenya for seven years when our book opens. Along with thousands of others, they’ve fled Somalia when war broke out in their country. The details surrounding how they ended up in the camp come later in the book, and I am not going to spoil them for you. They’re cared for by Fatuma, who is a sort of foster mom for them, and Omar does a lot of the work that needs to be done to keep the three of them alive.⁠

One of the most memorable things for me from early in the book was the fact that they didn’t have something as simple as a real soccer ball. Instead the children in the camp gathered up plastic bags and fashioned them into a ball like shape so they would have something to play with. ⁠

We get to see and experience Omar’s reservations about deciding to attend school rather than take care of his brother. Making the decision was hard for Omar and anyone who has had to make a difficult decision and weigh the potential pros and cons of a situation will be able to appreciate his struggle.⁠

Omar has to fight against so many things at such a young age and while being responsible for his brother. It’s inspiring to anyone who feels like just getting through the day is difficult. It’s such a great book for anyone who needs a reminder that they’re not alone in their struggle to find a reason to move forward, to reach for something that might be just out of reach, or to hope for a better future.⁠ ( )

This is the true story of Somalian refugee Omar Mohamed, who fled to Dadaab, a massive Kenyan refugee camp at age 4, with his little brother when his father was killed, and they are separated from their mother. A kind older woman "adopts" the two boys, but life is a struggle for everyone in the camp. Omar's little brother doesn't speak and Omar won't leave him. Eventually, he is convinced to go to school, where he excels and interviews for a chance to emigrate. Years go by, Omar's hopes fade, and he becomes resigned to his fate. Jamieson does an excellent job of telling Omar's story. Besides the heartbreak of being a refugee with no future, this book also plumbs social issues, such as the plight of Muslim women, and intolerance. The artwork is very good, as is the messages that small kindnesses matter and miracles do sometimes happen. ( )

Victoria Jamieson retells the story of her co-author, Omar Mohamed, a Somalian refugee. He flees from Somalia and spends most of his childhood in a refugee camp with his younger brother. He accepts his life but he mainly focuses on caring for his brother Hassan, who his disabled. This graphic novel gives readers a realistic insight into the daily lives and challenges of refugees in a camp. Despite the circumstances, Omar is kind and ambitious. ( )
