New From Here

By Nancy, Age 12

The book that makes me feel finally seen is New From Here. I relate to New From Here because I also faced racial discrimination just like Knox, Bowen, and Lea. At school, a kid said something racist and I stood up for myself and my classmates. We echoed each other like Knox and Christopher did in the book. Also, I had a teacher who reminded me of Knox’s teacher. He made it fun to do math and recognized that people learn in all different ways. Finally, I am Asian American just like Knox and members of my family are immigrants too. As you can see, New From Here made feel finally seen.
