I would have loved this if it wasn't for the sappy, "America-saves-the-day" kind of ending. Most refugees' stories don't end this way and it's kind of silly to have American kids read a book that leaves them with this sugarcoated and false message. I was hoping to use this along with The Breadwinner but I doubt I will. The ending ruined all the positive messages about friendship, at least for me.
