Summary Nazir, his father, and older brother live in Myanmar, a country that has experienced many years of violence. As a part of the Rohingya minority group, the family is considered unwelcome in their homeland. Nazir and his father flee by boat to a refugee camp, eventually escaping as refugees to the United States. Interspersed with facts about Myanmar and its people, this narrative tells a story common to many refugees fleeing the country. Readers will learn about the conflict there and how they can help refugees in their communities and around the world who are struggling to find permanent homes.
