    Yet another.. Great story fro Nadia Hashim. This is the fifth book of hers that I have read. It is different in that the whole story takes place in America yet it includes the Afghan background of the main characters mother. It is another winner in my opinion. ...

    The sky at our feet was really interesting. I liked the characters because they were well described and they had a lot of different layers. I liked how it was actually hard for the resolution to happen instead he finds it immediately. The end came together really nicely. ...

    I didn't realize it was meant to be a juvenile fiction read, so my initial rating would have been much lower....but for younger kids would be a good book. ...

    What a great book for middle Grade discussion. Review coming! ...

    Nothing like the quality of all this author?s other books. ...

    Timely story and I did like it but I wasn't blown away by the narrative. It seemed a bit predictable... I liked the concept and I loved the perspective but it failed a little bit for me... ...

    I like that it handles serious subjects without getting scary. ...

    I loved all of Hashimi's other books and this is no exception! Wonderful read. It's made me pensive... ...

    A very sweet book! Very quick read and shows how someone who grew up here does not truly understand how someone who came here and doesnt have papers, truly lives. Incredibly heart touching. ...

    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...

    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...

    Action-packed, character-driven middle grade fiction with a social conscience! I loved the twists and turns of Jason's journey, along with the optimism created by a cast of ultimately helpful, caring adults. ...

    Yet another.. Great story fro Nadia Hashim. This is the fifth book of hers that I have read. It is different in that the whole story takes place in America yet it includes the Afghan background of the main characters mother. It is another winner in my opinion. ...

    The sky at our feet was really interesting. I liked the characters because they were well described and they had a lot of different layers. I liked how it was actually hard for the resolution to happen instead he finds it immediately. The end came together really nicely. ...

    I didn't realize it was meant to be a juvenile fiction read, so my initial rating would have been much lower....but for younger kids would be a good book. ...

    What a great book for middle Grade discussion. Review coming! ...

    Timely story and I did like it but I wasn't blown away by the narrative. It seemed a bit predictable... I liked the concept and I loved the perspective but it failed a little bit for me... ...

    I like that it handles serious subjects without getting scary. ...

    I loved all of Hashimi's other books and this is no exception! Wonderful read. It's made me pensive... ...

    A very sweet book! Very quick read and shows how someone who grew up here does not truly understand how someone who came here and doesnt have papers, truly lives. Incredibly heart touching. ...

    This was wonderful ...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 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...

    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...

    ?Sometimes people break rules because they think it?s the best thing they can do. Sometimes it is the right thing to do. Sometimes it?s not. These are tough questions, and tough questions never have easy answers.? Jason D?s Mom is picked up from work by ICE. This story is ...

    Action-packed, character-driven middle grade fiction with a social conscience! I loved the twists and turns of Jason's journey, along with the optimism created by a cast of ultimately helpful, caring adults. ...

    Yet another.. Great story fro Nadia Hashim. This is the fifth book of hers that I have read. It is different in that the whole story takes place in America yet it includes the Afghan background of the main characters mother. It is another winner in my opinion. ...

    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...

    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...

    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 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...

    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...

    ?Sometimes people break rules because they think it?s the best thing they can do. Sometimes it is the right thing to do. Sometimes it?s not. These are tough questions, and tough questions never have easy answers.? Jason D?s Mom is picked up from work by ICE. This story is ...

    Action-packed, character-driven middle grade fiction with a social conscience! I loved the twists and turns of Jason's journey, along with the optimism created by a cast of ultimately helpful, caring adults. ...

    Yet another.. Great story fro Nadia Hashim. This is the fifth book of hers that I have read. It is different in that the whole story takes place in America yet it includes the Afghan background of the main characters mother. It is another winner in my opinion. ...

    The sky at our feet was really interesting. I liked the characters because they were well described and they had a lot of different layers. I liked how it was actually hard for the resolution to happen instead he finds it immediately. The end came together really nicely. ...

    I didn't realize it was meant to be a juvenile fiction read, so my initial rating would have been much lower....but for younger kids would be a good book. ...

    What a great book for middle Grade discussion. Review coming! ...

    Nothing like the quality of all this author?s other books. ...

    Timely story and I did like it but I wasn't blown away by the narrative. It seemed a bit predictable... I liked the concept and I loved the perspective but it failed a little bit for me... ...

    I like that it handles serious subjects without getting scary. ...

    I loved all of Hashimi's other books and this is no exception! Wonderful read. It's made me pensive... ...

    A very sweet book! Very quick read and shows how someone who grew up here does not truly understand how someone who came here and doesnt have papers, truly lives. Incredibly heart touching. ...
