Welcome to the New World Summary Ø 104 characters ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ✓ Jake Halpern Jake Halpern ✓ 4 Summary Grandmother brothers sisters and cousins stranded in exile in Jordan Welcome to the New World tells the Aldabaans’ story Resettled in Connecticut with little English few friends and even less money the family of seven strive to create something like home As a blur of language classes job training programs and the fearsome first days of high school with hijab give way to normalcy the Aldabaans are lulled into a sense of security A white van cruising slowly past the house prompts some unease which erupt. These are the type of stories that I hate having to rate because this is a true story based off of surviving Trump s US as refugees from SyriaIt infuriates me to no end that the United States has been sold as this all inclusive resort package that accepts people from all creeds That is an absolute lie and is exactly what plays out in this poignant graphic novel There s a scene where the son Naji has these grandiose dreams of what it must be like to be a child raised in the US where you re surrounded by lavishness and not leaving in an actual war zone However when Naji arrives in the US how he is treated and what he experiences makes his miss Syria even despite the constant turmoil he was subjected to This resonated with me as a reader because it is ludicrous that the bigotry and xenophobia in this country makes refugees miss literal war zonesThere are a lot of heartbreaking scenes in this book The sacrifices that each of the family members must make in order to pursue a better life will tear at your insides But even though there s so many roadblocks in front of the Aldabaans they refuse to give up on each other and doing whatever it takes to build a better future Their hope and dreams were infectious Thank you Henry Holt Co for providing a review copy This did not influence my review All opinions are my own

Welcome to the New World Summary Ø 104 characters ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ✓ Jake Halpern Jake Halpern ✓ 4 Summary Now in a full length book the New York Times Pulitzer Prize–winning graphic story of a refugee family who fled the civil war in Syria to make a new life in AmericaAfter escaping a Syrian prison Ibrahim Aldabaan and his family fled the country to seek protection in America Among the few refugees to receive visas they finally landed in JFK airport on November 8 2016 Election Day The family had reached a safe harbor but woke up to the world of Donald Trump and a Muslim ban that would sever them from the. I have been enjoying a lot of non fiction based or fiction based on non fiction graphic novels lately This falls into the first category and is a retelling of the life of a Syrian refugee family around the time of the 2016 United States presidential election This is a good story to read for a white middle American male like me who was not as fully aware of the plight and worries of refugees in the shadow of an incoming administration very vocally planning to close borders it led some to villainize and threaten people from other countries and cultures to an extent I was not fully aware ofOne of the tough things about a story like this is that my anxiety really acts up when I hear true stories of people being awful to each other It is one of the reasons I have backed away from the news and most social media in 2020 just too much hate I don t understand why it has become normalized to be mean to each other I know there are many thoughts and opinions on this and it is not my intention to begin a political discussion that will just get my anxiety going even But to willingly read a story taking me out of my comfort zone like this is a pretty big deal in 2020 The fact that it shows normal people trying to lead normal lives being met by hatred and fear is disappointing and frankly nauseating All of that being said while it was a good story that I am glad I am aware of despite my disappointment in the behavior of my fellow man I was not uite as captivated by the way the story was told and the accompanying imagery as I had hoped I would be It was by no means bad it just did not grip me as much as some other non fiction graphic novels do Also some of the dialogue felt forced to make a point if the delivery does not feel organic for me it stands out and feels odd What I am guessing what happened was the author took several real life scenarios and tried to summarize them on one page which led to a few awkward deliveriesI can summarize my overall experience in this way an interesting and important story with a lackluster delivery But you may enjoy the delivery than I did and I think you should try it
