When Stars are Scattered, by Victoria Jamieson & Omar Mohamed

This is the true story of Omar and his brother Hassan, who grew up in a refugee camp in Kenya after leaving Somalia. They were desperately hoping their mom would find them, but managed to pull it off with a foster mom and a school.

It is important to get stories like this out to kids so they are less likely to form preconceived notions about refugees based on the current political climate. It was well-written and enjoyable.

This is a graphic novel for kids which I listened to adapted to audiobook. It was well read and interesting despite not having the pictures.
