  • The Newcomers

    Finding Refuge, Friendship, and Hope in an American Classroom

    Twenty-two teenaged refugees adapt to life in America with the help of their English teacher.

    "I loved this book. It brims with teenage life, with a sense of America being reborn, of new Americans being made. Cultures converge in a high school classroom where teenagers-with all the energy, earnestness, and embarrassment we expect, but also with trauma-learn English with the help of a teacher who appreciates all the ways it's not easy. The Newcomers teaches us about parts of the world we can barely imagine and also takes us into their new American homes. Helen Thorpe, herself the child of immigrants, is a terrific writer and a steadfast character witness to these people so many of us fear." - Ted Conover, author of Coyotes, Newjack, and Immersion
