Home of the Brave
by Katherine Applegate
I picked up Home of the Brave thinking I would not like it because it was written in poems. I was very wrong. Home of the Brave was one of my favorite books that I have read so far this summer. It really gives you an idea of how unfortunate some people are in other countries when the main character discovers so many new things in America. He is so used to having so little and not living with any lixuries that he doesn’t know what to do with all this new unfarmilliar technology. My favorite part was when the main character puts dishes in the washing machine. He thinks it washes anything but he ends up breaking all the dishes. He tells the book through his eyes when he moves to America from Africa and teaches us through his struggles how to be a good friend to everyone even when they are not one to you. I highly recomend this book even to people who do not like poetry.
