Holiday road trip! Warm and cozy at the back seat with my pillow, blanket, and this book !
Randomly grabbed this one from my tbr shelves. One of my favorite authors.
Fereiba, her husband, and three kids live in Afghanistan. Fereiba is a school teacher and her husband works for the power/water company. They are living a happy and comfortable life when, all of a sudden, the Taliban rises to power. Their family gets targeted by this fundamentalist regime and decides they must flee to London for their own survival. This is a very powerful story of family, loss, and survival. It really touched my heart.
The downside to #bookmail - when you have no idea one of the books is going to be “miniature”! These are for a gift and the different sizes are bothering me! Why is it so little? I hope my friend has good eyesight as the font is tiny 🤓
Beautiful, moving story of an Afghani family who is forced to flee their home because of the Taliban. The author skillfully depicts the plight of immigrants and the stress and hardships they face as they cross borders.
The #Litsypartyofone theme is PoC but I wanted to finish up books I had on the go first. With only one ch left in The Glass Universe, I can pick my next read and join in on the PoC theme... only trouble is I can't decide between these books! Any suggestions?

1) Heap House
2) Cutting for Stone
3) Think Twice
4) Born to Walk

8) The Ocean at the End of the Lane
9) We Need to Talk about Kevin
This is how my library is fundraising. We have alcohol license, local jazz bands, celebrities chefs, and world famous author Nadia Hashimi, who just singed a copy for my @LitsyGoesPostal book club friend @Dogearedcopy Ms. Hashimi is not in Litsy yet but I told her about our amazing family and hope she will be here soon.
Quite a relevant book... Hashimi is a great writer and her readability definitely hooked me! I enjoyed and became attached to her characters quite quickly. I'm already pretty liberal, but her depiction of how refugees are treated both saddened me and gave me hope for humanity. Great read!
