REVIEW: When Stars Are Scattered

When Stars Are Scattered

Today’s featured blogger review takes a closer look at Elementary/Middle Grade Graphic Novels finalist When Stars Are Scattered by Victoria Jamieson, Omar Mohamed, and Iman Geddy:

This book just gobsmacked me. It’s a powerful tale of two brothers in a refugee camp. Born in Somalia at the onset of a civil war, Omar, the eldest, watched his father get killed. Then he and his brother were separated from their mother. The two boys fled with a group of other villagers and ended up in a refugee camp in Kenya.
