Azzi in Between

(1 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Frances Lincoln

When Azzi and her parents have to flee their home because the country is at war, Azzi leaves behind everything she knows and loves, most importantly her grandmother. Azzi arrives in a new, unfamiliar country where she must learn a new language and live among strangers. Everything is different. But Azzi is resourceful and brave; slowly she learns how to adapt to her new life in a safe country.

This is a moving tale of a refugee family told in graphic novel style and so appealing to a wide range of younger readers. Beautifully illustrated, it conveys perfectly Azzi's feelings of loss and displacement in an absorbing, and ultimately uplifting, adventure story.
