Product description

Review

"Warga portrays with extraordinary talent the transformation of a family's life before and after the war began in Syria.... Her free-verse narration cuts straight to the bone... [and] confront[s] the difficult realities of being Muslim and Arab in the U.S. Poetic, immersive, hopeful."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

[In] this timely book... rhythmic lines distill Jude's deepest emotions.... Warga effectively shows, as she writes in an author's note, that "children who are fleeing from a war zone... want the same things all of us do--love, understanding, safety, a chance at happiness."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Warga's middle-grade debut puts its hands around your heart and holds it, ever so gently, so that you're aware of your own fragility and resilience: just as Jude is while her life changes drastically... Other Words for Home should find its way into every middle-grade reader's hands."--ALA Booklist (starred review)

“Convincing and authentic, infused with thoughtfulness, humor, determination, and hope.... A realistic portrait of the strength it takes to move to a new country, as well as of the complicated dynamics between first- and second-generation immigrants.”--Horn Book (starred review)

“This is a necessary story. We're lucky to have it in the world.”--Jason Reynolds, award-winning, bestselling author of Ghost and Long Way Down

"Warga situates her verse novel at a sweet spot for middle-graders...the complications of assessing whether Jude is as lucky as everyone makes her out to be ring poignantly true, and when Jude takes her place on the school stage, Warga's audience will surely applaud."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"This powerful middle grade novel explores the complicated concepts of war and corruption, home, family, [and] belonging.... Highly recommended for all libraries, this title will easily find a home next to books like Refugee by Alan Gratz and Inside Out and Back Again by Thanhha Lai."--School Library Journal (starred review)

"Other Words for Home is a gorgeously written middle grade novel with words that soar off the page. Told in stunning verse and featuring an effortlessly lovable narrator, this book will be a staple of middle grade shelves for years to come."--Rachel Strolle, Teen Librarian, Glenside Public Library

"Through Jude's eyes readers see firsthand what it is to leave behind one's beloved home and family as many refugees do every single day. Young readers will laugh with Jude, cry with her, and root for her every step of the way. A beautiful, powerful, and necessary book."--Aisha Saeed, New York Times bestselling author of Amal Unbound.

🌟 “I cover my head not because I am ashamed forced or hiding. But because I am proud and want to be seen as I am.” Other Words for Home, Jasmine Warga.
.
🌟 I do not usually read Middle Grade or Young Adult but once in a while, I like to take a sneak peek just to see how the other half lives. Also, the fascination I have with how to do children process trauma and manifest it into their lives which might seem oblivious to many. If you have a teenager in your life, and you are searching for books to teach them empathy and tolerance regardless of their religion, gender, and ethnicity, then I highly recommend this book.
.
🌟 We often talk about war and its ramifications, its pre-existing turbulence, and future implications but it is hardly contemplated what principles are we instilling into the juveniles. This is the book that perhaps has raised the subject unambiguously. Or else often the books like these which highlight such important sensitive issues are met with bizarre interpretations.
.
🌟 Other Words for Home is about a twelve-year-old Syrian girl, Jude, who just not had to leave her home but is forced to separate from her father and brother. She moves to the United States with her mother and is instantly condemned to an identity crisis and religious condescension. Wagra has fluidly paid homage to the attribute that Hijab, or covering of one’s head is a personal choice for many. She disbands the concept of Islamophobia and beautifully conveys everyone to not stereotype.
.
🌟 My favorite thing about this book is the fact that it represents children, the age group we often tend to forget or misapprehend. We mistake their rapid physical healing to mental healing. We take their accommodating and adjusting age for-granted. They are as bit of humans as the adults are. They do not know malice or animosity. We introduce them to these feelings. We teach them these words. Please be mindful of how you are around them, how you are treating them, or else the vicious cycle of traumatization will never cease to end.
