New From Here

By Kokoro, Age 12

In this story, Knox faces many challenges, including being separated from his dad during Covid-19. I chose this book because it makes me feel Finally Seen. I can relate to the protagonist in the book, Knox. My father lives in the US with my family, but he travels to different places, including Japan, often for his work. In the book, Knox has to travel away from his father and go to another country. He feels this is unfair and doesn’t want to leave China. In my life my dad goes to Japan to work for his company. This book reminded me of my dad, and that is why this book made me feel Finally Seen. Thank you!
