Stories of the mystery of immigrant lives

With our country’s continuing need for stories on families who are arriving in the U.S. for refuge,  Book Riot reviewer, Kelly Jensen, offers this new reading list, YA Books about Immigration.   Included here are many new voices to YA literature.  Since I’ve been working so much in U.S. classrooms with students and teachers who are reading my books,  I was especially interested in a journalistic account,  The Newcomers, Finding Refuge, Friendship, and Hope in an American Classroom.  The New York Times reviewer described The Newcomers, written by an Irish American who came when she was one-year old,  as a “delicate and heartbreaking mystery story.”

    Thank you. I have small windows as I visit diverse American classrooms. I look forward to reading how a journalist covers the story of a year’s immersion in one school
