Walking in Someone Else’s Shoe

Walking in Someone Else’s Shoe

My free verse book is Inside Out and Back Again. I wanted to read this book because of how relatable it is to how my parents came to be in the United States. The stories that my mom would tell me always included them running away as refugee and coming to the United States to start a new chapter in their lives. This book definitely covers the idea of how they managed to keep up with life even though it seems to get tougher and tougher as the days goes by. I love how it comes the kid’s perspective and she see’s herself smart when she was given money to buy groceries and made a little adjustment to buy all of the neccessary items at the market. It reminded me of the idea that I when I was given money, I would make sure to have enough to buy myself something as well.  It was like a treat for doing a small minor errand for my mom. I loved every moment of this book. How ups and downs it would have and the hardships the family went through. Family is important as well as a place we call home. No matter where we are and how far we are, we will always have a place that we call home.

  1. I really like how you chose the book based on past experiences your family has faced. I definitely put family first like you do, they are the most important things in my life.
