This week’s featured teen booklist is a tough one, but a very important one. The books on this list tell the difficult stories of young immigrants, refugees, and other people suffering human rights abuses. Most of them aren’t happy stories, but they have happy moments and they do offer hope. And the perspective you gain from learning about someone’s struggles is invaluable. I hope you will take the time to pick a book from this list and open your heart to their incredible journeys. Maybe it will inspire you to learn even more and find out how you can help people in similar situations.
