leave their country a better place and a better futureIt was a suffocating heart wrenching sad story about hope cruelty loss and humanity Sick day Chest cold and laryngitis Time to rest read and reviewThe European migrant crisis becomes fodder for a generic dramatized graphic novel by what looks like a bunch of European white guys Hmm There was an over reliance on coincidence and having a split time line throughout much of the book took away a lot of the dramatic tension of the desert seuences as we know who makes it to the boat LATER IN THE STORY S CHRONOLOGY in the story s chronology happy ending is slapped on but I feel the protagonist s problems would be far from over if he were a real person I guess this is simplified for kids focusing on the dangerous and adventurous parts of the hero s uest but really glossing over the causes conseuences and potential progression of this sad and difficult time of upheaval for millions of people in our world This is a short book and though I wished some parts were a bit fleshed out it is worth reading I also think the graphic novel format would make important subject matter accessible to students if this were used in school The story of the refugee is not a new one but it has been in the news a lot these past few ears This makes it important I think to consider the individual stories of these people who are desperate to leave their homeland for whatever re.
