" Story of a refugee's journey from the Congo to England through a young girl's eyes. Powerful. Important story to be told -- of how uncertain many children's lives and futures are. " said.

" The first title in the Refugee Diary series. " said.

"This book tells the heartwarming story of a young girl from the Republic of Congo who is forced to immigrate to the Ivory Coast, Ghana, and then to England. Gervelie describes how the Cobra militia attacked her hometown, and her family was obligated to move to the Ivory Coast for their safety. Soon after, Gervelie’s mother came and took Gervelie back to the Congo to live with her and her new husband. Gervelie says that it was a painful experience to live with her violent stepfather, a couple of days later her grandmother took her away to the Ivory Coast again. The military started to attack the Ivory Coast and Gervelie and her father flew to Ghana. Then, they got on another plane and fled to England. Gervelie describes the dangerous struggles her and her father went through to get through England using false documents. When they got through immigration, Gervelie and her father went to the Refugee Council and were provided with a place to live and food. Gervelie grew up in Norwich, England and continued her education there. Thanks to the support of her father, the Refugee council, and her community she was able to live a better life, but she still misses her mother and wishes to someday go and visit Africa.

This story would be good to teach older students from grades 5 and up about the real struggles and hardships some people have to face in order to have a better life. It talks about immigration to other countries and it talks about the culture of the people from the Ivory Coast. This book would be great to teach students to appreciate their families, education, and way of living because some people don't have it as easy. It's a great book to teach inspiration and motivation to students that one can prevail in any situation if they work hard and are determined.
