I found this hardcover (in good condition, but featuring a fair amount of underlining by a previous reader) at a local thrift shop. It's about Meli, a young girl whose family is Albanian and who live in Kosovo - until they're displaced and forced to join hundreds of other refugees. And Meli thinks it's all her fault for drawing a funny picture of her teacher and his "pelican nose"...

Picked this up at the LFL on Hawthorne Road in Waltham, MA on my way down south. I *think* I might already own a copy of this, but I'm not positive, so I'm taking it just in case! The story looks interesting.

6 out of 10

It's very short and kind of simplistic, but it's for young readers (pre-YA), so I can forgive that! Especially since it's about the Kosovo War, which isn't exactly a common subject for children's books. And I liked the underlining: it was fun to see what an earlier reader had found particularly memorable/notable!
