Everything Sad is Untrue (a true story)
by Daniel Nayeri
Daniel tells stories. As a middle schooler from Iran, he fills his time in his new classroom in Oklahoma sharing stories about what it was like living in Iran and what it's like being "the refugee kid in the back of the class." This beautiful tale illustrates how we are all connected, and how when we listen to one another's stories, we can no longer be enemies. Highly recommended for older elementary and middle school readers.
