azzi in between coverAzzi in Between by Sarah Garland
Recommended for: Grades 4 and up

When war comes to Azzi’s homeland, she and her parents must escape to another country.  This touching and powerful graphic novel tells the story of Azzi’s entry into a new country, her struggle to learn the language, make friends, and remember her homeland.  Azzi’s home country and new host country are never named, so she comes to represent any refugee from any conflict.  The story is realistic but not didactic; children will feel a connection to Azzi and will learn a lot about a refugee’s experience.
