The Boy at the Back of the ClassBook - 2019
"On the third Tuesday of the school year, a new kid arrives in in Mrs. Khan's class: Ahmet, a Syrian refugee. Everyone is curious about the newcomer--especially since he never smiles and doesn't talk much either. Still, one student is determined to become his friend and learns that standing up for others has the incredible potential to change an entire community for the better. Packed with humor and heart, Onjali Q. Raúf's debut novel raises key questions about any refugee crisis and highlights the importance of being an ally. Timely yet timeless, this story encourages kindness and reminds readers that everyone deserves a place to call home."--Page 2 of cover.
