Profile Picture
After reading A Refugee's Journey from Afghanistan by Helen Mason , I would rate it 4 out of 5 stars.Overall, I thought the book was good because we can read 3 different sides of how the government can treat the people unfairly in one novel.Josef and his family got dragged out of there house and the Nazis are forcing them to leave Germany.In Cuba,Isabel and her family are trying to leave Cuba ASAP because the country is going through a rough time and there is nothing they could survive with.In Syria,Mahmoud,his Brother and Mother are trying to flee from Syria because innocent people like them are getting killed by the government or ISIS them self.I would recommend this wonderful book for those type of person that like reading biographies or that would read events that happened in the past.I could read this book again because it teached me that family is the most loyal friend you would ever have.
