Home of The Brave
I just finished reading Home of the Brave by Katherine Applegate. It is the story of a young immigrant to the United States that is incredibly insightful. This is only the second book I have read by Katherine Applegate but I plan on reading every one she has ever written in hopes that some of her incredible skill and heart can drip from the pages onto me. The character was developed so artfully and completely. Her words are like, "apples of gold in settings of silver"--words fitly spoken.
I feel like I took something away from the story that helps me understand people more and inspires more compassion in me. I appreciate a story that aspires to give that kind of depth to children.
