over too soon

It was really good and it really made me think about immigration and how hard it is for them but it was too short. Played it for 30 minutes and it was done.

Is It Any Good?

This is a powerful experience for teens who want to learn and understand more about the refugee crisis. The story on Finding Home - A Refugee's Journey was compiled through interviews with real refugees. When the user's phone becomes part of the app experience, the story takes a personal, real-life perspective that is both shocking and memorable. Finding Home - A Refugee's Journey can help teens empathize with refugee teens in a way that no news story can. And using the context of the device they use so often each day is both a powerful point of connection and a potential reminder of how different things could be, depending on their own experiences.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
