Kids say (3 ):

Through the inspiring stories of nine courageous girls, Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai puts a young and relatable face on the world's refugee crisis. The stories recounted in We Are Displaced are simply but powerfully told, and teens will find they often have more in common with the girls (making plans for college, playing on a soccer team, feeling different or being bullied) than they thought possible. Updated photos of Malala and her family, Zainab, Muzoon, Maria, Najla, Ajida, and Marie Claire and Jennifer are included at the back of the book.

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.
