Mehso-so

I really like Liyana and the way Shihab Nye portrays her family's move from Missouri to Jerusalem, but I can't figure out the meaning of the abrupt ending. Is it supposed to be hopeful? Or maybe it's supposed to represent that, regardless of the relationships between individuals in Israel/Palestine, the conflicts have a life of their own?

I read this with my son as part of Level 7 of the Build Your Library homeschool curriculum.

A few #setinthemiddleeast from my #TBR. I adore Naomi Shihab Nye's poetry (and everything else I've heard of her!), but haven't yet read any of her fiction. And Lynne Reid Banks was a favorite childhood author. Looking forward to exploring all three of these. #maybookflowers

LiteraryinLawrence I read Habibi as a kid and remember enjoying it. 6y
