Product description

Review

"A beautiful, powerful, and necessary book for all readers."

--"Aisha Saeed, New York Times bestselling author"

"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)"

"A story about war and displacement, resilience and adjustment...Poetic, immersive, hopeful."

--"Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"

🌟 “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.
