This week’s book recommendation was chosen by Diana Ash, Senior Technical Aid at North East Library.
She chose “Welcome to the New World” by Josh Halpern and Michael Sloan.
“This graphic novel, based on a Pulitzer Prize winning series in the New York Times, depicts a family fleeing civil war in Syria and arriving in the United States ahead of the 2016 presidential election,” Ash said. “They struggle to fit in, survive high school, and make friends, until a death threat forces them to start over again. I read this book due to the large immigrant population in the North East area.”
