Looking at the Stars

(2014)
A novel by

 
In a time of war, with families torn apart, can imagination and stories give you hope? An inspiring story of friendship and love that will stay with you long after you turn the final page.
Amina's homeland has been ravaged by war for many months, but so far she and her family are safe, together. When a so-called liberating force arrives in the country, the family think their prayers for peace will soon be answered, but they are horribly wrong. The country is thrown into yet further turmoil and Amina's family is devastated. Through it all, Amina has her imagination to fall back on -- of a better place and time. But can her stories get her through this?
Filled with discussion points, themes and topics -- this would be the perfect class reader or book club title.
