The Newcomers: Finding Refuge, Friendship, and Hope in an American Classroom. Helen Thorpe

5 of 5 stars

Back a long time ago, when I was in middle school, then, high school, I always wondered what it would be like to transfer to a school in another country. I can only surmise that it must have felt incredibly lonely on a level which most of cannot fathom.

This book is too much. It has far too much information and far too much substance to take in, even in small bites. For the sensate, there is only too much second-hand pain that one can handle.

I am not stating that the author, the high school instructor, Mr. Williams, nor anyone else involved with this program do not care. I do not mean that, in any manner.

I am only stating my own feelings.

It's a lot.
