    ?If you don't take risks, you'll have a wasted soul.? ----Drew Barrymore Nadia Hashimi, an internationally bestselling author, pens a heart wrenching and extremely intriguing tale about two kids' fearless adventures around the city of Big Apple to get to an address in her...

    This book, set in New York at one of the most uncertain times in our recent history, is an excellent and evocative story of friendship, family and what it truly means to be an American. Jason's life is harrowing to read about, to say the least. He's a child who's not only facing being ...

    Wow! This book was so good! It has a lot of determination. To hop on a train, talk to the police, get a concussion with no one there to help and guide you? That's what I can determination. ...

    Richie?s Picks: THE SKY AT OUR FEET by Nadia Hashimi, HarperCollins, March 2018, 304p., ISBN: 978-0-06-242193-7 ?That very night in Max?s room a forest grew and grew-- and grew until his ceiling hung with vines and the walls became the world all around? --Maurice Sendak,...

    This was wonderful ...

    When two men, who do not look like customers, start talking to his mother at work in New Jersey, Jason is terrified that his mother will be sent back to Afghanistan since she is not a U.S citizen. Remaining hidden he watches the frightening scene unfold, and when he finally sees his mo...

    E ARC from Edelweiss Plus Jason and his mother live in Elkton, where his mother works in a laundry, and the two live in a small but cozy apartment. One day, his mother tells him that while he was born in the US and is an American citizen, she came to the US on a student visa whi...

    The Sky At Our Feet is a story about a young boy Jason D, and his mother who had fled Afghanistan after his father's death and now are living in America as immigrants. Written from Jason's point of view its about his adventures or should I say misadventures when he finds out that his m...

    Thing is, the reason this book gets a 3-star from me is because I?m reading it as an adult. I saw the premise of the book and I loved it esp with Trump deporting thousands of Muslim families on the border. So it?s a beautiful take about the separation of a mother and her 12-year ...

    If books should be mirrors, then Hashimi's The Sky at Our Feet is a floor-to-ceiling one. Informative but not preachy, this is a tale that covers a lot of ground (pardon the pun). Adventure, politics, health and science, and the sheer love of NYC all shine through. This is a book f...

    Good, realistic story of a boy and his mother who are living in the U. S. illegally. His mother is forever in fear of getting caught and being sent back to Afghanistan, and she finally shares her fears with her son, who had no idea. (not the ebook, print edition) ...

    A lovely romp around exciting New York City as a young Afghan-American boy relies on his wits, being brave and trusting others to help find help for his Mum. Ever fearful of being deported for being an illegal immigrant, Jason's Mum's worst fears are realised one morning when she is ta...

    Jason D is Afghan American tween living in New Jersey. He had no idea his mother was illegally staying in America, and he thought his father died in a car accident. When he is told the truth -- Dad was killed because he served as translator and guide to Americans, and Mom stayed in Ame...

    Thank you to Nadia Hashimi and Harper Collins for providing #collabookation an ARC of The Sky at Our Feet to share and review. Jason D learned a month ago that his mother is an ?illegal alien? in the US. Then he sees her taken from her job and put into the back of a car by two un...

    Dr. Hashimi has done it again by writing a book that is informative and enlightening but also engaging, suspenseful, and very current. This time she writes of Jason D ., a young American Afghan boy who learns that his mom has been keeping a secret, a scary secret that could destroy the...

    When Jason sees his mother being taken away, his world is turned upside down and he's overcome by fear of what's to come next. His mom has been living in the US illegally and had an idea that something like this would happen. The backup plan has always been for Jason to find his aunt i...

    I've had the privilege to volunteer to welcome a number of warm, loving, wonderful families of refugees from Afghanistan into my community in the past year, and too few of us have had the opportunity to get to know these extraordinarily hospitable, warm people. I am so happy to encount...

    I hadn't realized that this book was geared towards young kids/tweens, so it was not quite the complex, hard-hitting book on immigration in the US that I was expecting. With that said, I enjoyed reading the book. The characters are well developed and very likable, and I particularly en...

    This story had so many small twists. I like to think I'm pretty good at knowing how stories go, but I really didn't know this time. Nadia Hashimi kept me surprised, pleasantly so. Twelve year old Jason D. is all of us when we feel like the most important thing in our world is being ...

    I really recommend this book it gives you another look about the lifestyles of other cultures in the U.S. The Main character Jason and his friend Max are running around New York City on there own in search of Jason's Aunts house. Jason originally from a small town came to New York afte...

    An important and relevant book for our current immigration climate. A boy, Jason, finds out his mother is in the US illegally. She left Afghanistan during the war and only recently told her son she does not have the correct papers so when he sees his mother being taken away by two men ...

    I received this through Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. Jason D and his mother fled from tumultuous Afghanistan to America. While he was born in America, his mother is living in the US illegally. When Jason's mother is taken by the feds, Jason runs away and attempts to ...

    Jason's world changes after his mother reveals she has overstayed her student Visa and is in the country illegally. He sees her taken away from her place of employment and decides to get to his "aunt" in New York City. Most of the book takes us through his travels. He end up in the hos...

    Readers can easily relate to Jason D's emotions of having to fend for himself when his Afghan mother, who had just confessed to him that she is in the United States illegally, is whisked away by two officers. Will he be next? Will he have to grow up as an orphan in NYC? Will he see his...

    Thank you to Harper Collins and Edelweiss for an ARC of this middle grade book. It was quite an adventure story. It begins on the day when Jason sees his mother picked up from her job at the laundromat because she does not have American citizenship. He decides to go find his "Aunt" ...

    While I didn't find this as fully engaging and enveloping as "One Half from the East," I did enjoy it - Jason's voice is distinct and strong, and it manages to be a book about a serious topic without being about the serious topic. Jason's adventure through New York is fun and suspensef...

    This middle grade novel by Afghani-American Nadia Hashimi explores timely themes of immigration and being American as well as the timeless one of the search for identity. Jason navigates many adventures on his journey through NYC to be reunited with his mother. Along the way he connect...

    I really like Nadia Hashimi's books. The sky at our feet was a great book, focused on Jason D. and his life as a boy who's parents are from Afghanistan but was born in America. Jason struggles with identity, not knowing if he is an Afghan-american, just afghan and a bunch of other comb...

    I wasn't expecting this to be a middle grade book, as the other two I have read by this author were both for adults. Obviously this didn't go as deep, but was still a good read for me, and would be a great read for middle schoolers. Would stimulate a lot of discussion if used as a midd...
