RGG: Wonderful story about a "lost boy" acclimating to the United States. The verse is a bit easier to follow than Thanha Lai's Inside Out and Back Again. Very relatable. F-P: W.

Kek who is a refugee from Africa must figure out his new American life. He is living with his aunt and cousin. Kek goes to school and tries his best to fit in but struggles. The whole time Kek thinks about his mother and hope she will return to him someday.

This is a great book for understanding the perspectives of an immigrant coming to America for the first time. It really portrays the struggles that they go through everyday. The layout of this book really makes it an easy read. The book being broken up into small sections with big headers and being in poetry format was very interesting. I really liked the format that this book was written in. ( )

Poetry
This book should definitely be aimed at middle school students, maybe upper elementary because of it's pretty heavy and serious themes. It follows the main character, Kek, and his journey from a refugee camp in Africa to the United States. He faces a variety of difficulties with his assimilation, family, and finding his way to where he feels like he would belong. It's a very good book and sticks to the plotline, which is especially great for it being in free verse as well.

Listened to this on a day trip with the kids -- just the right length. Enjoyed by young and old. Former Caudill nominee, this is a beautiful story about Keck, a Sudan refugee, who comes to Minneapolis, MN in the dead of winter to join an aunt and cousin. His mother is unaccounted for in a camp somewhere and his father and brother were killed in the violence in his village. How he adapts to his new life is a story of courage, hope, and wonder. If it had been written for young adults or adults it could've been much more traumatic, but this is spot on and age-appropriate. Perfect way to examine what "home" means. ( )
