Wow... this book has heartbreaking as well as a powerful message. These young woman were forced to leave their homes because of a lot of different reason. But one message that comes across throughout the whole book is how they didn‘t let it get them down and they persevered and made it their mission to help others. I haven‘t read Malala‘s book yet but it will be bumped up my TBR list soon!

Such a profoundly moving book. 💚 In very few words, and with breathtaking artistry, this book captured my heart. Beautiful, heartbreaking story. Highly recommend.

BarbaraBB I felt the same. And those illustrations 💔 2w

julesG @Andrew65 I think it's a pilot project in one of the suburbs. But it is a great idea. 4w
Andrew65 @julesG It is! So many cuts in our library services over the past 10+ years! 4w

This book was great. It was published in 2016. Although published in 2016, the book is based on a night in 1981. It tells the story of a fishing boat that is filled with about 60 refugees. The story is being retold by one of the little boys that was on the boat with his mother, Tuan Ho. He was six at the time.
Not only is the story compelling and interesting, but the illustrations add extra depth and character to the story showing experiences.

em_lemo I did not have a quote that stuck out to me while reading this book because, as said before, the book is extremely compelling and intense. I think I would have to write the whole book if I had something that really stuck out to me. I will say that when Tuan is explaining what is going wrong on the boat such as the low amount of drinking water, I was on the edge of my sea. 2mo
