Please join us in announcing our latest One Book One School selection,
When Stars are Scattered by Victoria Jamieson and Omar Mohamed.

It's a fantastic non-fiction graphic novel that tells the story of Omar's walk from Somalia to Dadaab, a refugee camp in Kenya, after his village is destroyed. With his parents gone, Omar is left to care for his brother who has undiagnosed cognitive disabilities. Omar spends years in Dadaab, searching for his lost mother, praying for a life outside of the refugee camp, and wishing for a real future.

Please take some time to read this book over the summer!

Below is a book review from one of our rising 7th graders:
"So, this book was amazing! I mean, like really amazing! I might have to read it again, and I probably will, because I did finish it in like 2 hours, and I couldn't stop reading! I don't know who would be able to actually put the book down before finishing it.... 100% recommended for honestly, anyone! (Tanner L.)
