Education was free.Suburban mom Judy Bernstein had her own assumptions The teenaged Lost Boys of Sudan who d travelled barefoot and starving for a thousand miles needed a little mothering and a change of scenery a trip to the zoo, perhaps, or maybe the beach.Partnered through a mentoring program in San Diego, these two individuals from opposite sides of the world began an eye opening journey that radically altered each other s vision and life.Disturbed in Their Nests recounts the first year of this heartwarming partnership the initial misunderstandings, the growing trust, and, ultimately, their lasting friendship Their contrasting points of view provide of the moment insight into what refugees face when torn from their own cultures and thrust into entirely foreign ones.Alepho struggles to understand the fast paced, supersized way of life in America He lands a job but later is viciously beaten Will he ever escape violence and hatred Judy faces her own struggles Alepho and his fellow refugees need jobs, education, housing, and healthcare Why does she feel so compelled and how much support should she provide The migrant crises in the Middle East, Central America, Europe, and Africa have put refugees in the headlines Countless human tragedies are reduced to mere numbers Personal stories such as Alepho s add a face to the news and lead to a greater understanding of the strangers among us Readers experience Alepho s discomfort, fears, and triumphs in a way that a newscast can t convey This timely and inspiring personal account will make readers laugh, cry, and examine their own place in the world.This book had me in stitches I kept highlighting sentence after sentence as I laughed my way through their introduction to America a love of soda pop, shredding pillows, the outrage of having to go to the bathroom INSIDE, especially when the toilet was right beside the kitchen how dirty that seemed to the men It took me a while to get used to the reading style as the author would tell the story from the men s perspective and then Judy s once I figured that out, I was understanding of the repetitiveness.The book reminded me of the movie The Good Lie which also dealt with Sudanese immigrants getting used to living in America and their sponsor s struggles to get them settled Given the refugee crisis worldwide this is a must read book for any book club or person with a soft spot in their heart for helping people One thing I don t like about e books is their lack of photos of the authors that I would love to see in the book vs having to google them 5

Benson Deng, and Benjamin Ajak, with their mentor Judy Bernstein s help In it each of the men recounts leaving their villages when they were still very young, fleeing from those attacking them, and the harrowing treks through Sudan to Ethiopia, back to Sudan, and finally to a refugee camp in Kenya where they remained for years before being granted refugee status in the US Disturbed In Their Nests is written by Judy and Alepho and is a memoir of the first year of their life in the US I love the composition of the memoir, as chapters alternate between the two voices, as if they were right back there in 2001 It allows us to see both Judy and Alepho s perceptions of everything, which leads to some comical areas, but also to some very sad parts too, especially when a certain term we all use in the US is completely misunderstood by Alepho, which ends up causing him harm.Benson and Benjamin s voices are also often heard through Judy and Alepho s narrative, as well as their other roommates James and Daniel s experiences Alepho also recounts some of his experiences as a young boy fleeing his home, as well as life in the refugee camp during his chapters After finishing this book I honestly feel like I am on first name basis with all of them their voices are so real, so heartwarming, but also so devastatingly raw You cannot read this book without taking a serious look at your own life in order to find areas where you can really do better These children, and now adults, survived despite the odds being stacked so hard against them, and I don t think we can even begin to imagine what it took to continue living despite the conditions around them.In my opinion this book, as well as many others, should be on high school curriculums We need to understand the importance of refugee programs, and why we should be accepting people from all countries in conflict, not just picking and choosing based on country and religion The number of resettled refugees in the US dropped by tens of thousands in 2017, and this country has than enough space and resources to welcome many, many people than that No child should ever have to witness what Alepho, Benson, and Benjamin did,

Reading this book will take you on a journey of many emotions It s breathtaking, funny, heart wrenching, infuriating, and ultimately inspiring.Listen to this passage by Alepho from page 289 A few years later, when I was at a community meeting, an elder spoke to us boys Why do you think we lost our homes and families Why is your own government killing you Why have you been stranded in a refugee camp for almost ten years It is because you don t have the magic They look up at the sky and understand the stars They go to the moon and come back He pointed down They even look under the ground and know what s there We are being killed for the oil under our feet, and you don t even know it s there Americans know because they have received the magic of education That man s message went to my
