This children's grahpic memoir about Mohamed's childhood growing up in a refugee camp is great for readers of all ages. While I'm certain it doesn't cover the true depth of life as a displaced refugee, it paints a picture that is honest about global and personal injustices, and is hopeful without being "so inspirational."
