The Boat PeopleThe Boat People by Sharon Bala
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Thank you to PenguinRandomHouse Canada for a free copy of this book for review. This is a very timely book as the refugee issue is a situation facing many countries. I have always been interested in what happens to refugees once they are admitted to a different country and how their journey in starting their new life goes. I remember the “boat people” arriving in Canada and this is a nonfiction book based on those actual events. The story is told through three central characters and I found it quite compelling. If you are interested in refugee issues I think you will enjoy this book.
