WE ARE DISPLACED My Journey and Stories from Refugee Girls Around the World

by | Read by Neela Vaswani, Deepti Gupta, Cheryl Smith, Malala Yousafzai [Prologue]

Young Adult Young Adult • 4 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Listeners will especially enjoy the foreword of this audiobook, narrated by Malala Yousafzai, in which she acknowledges that her well-known background will provide context for the many personal stories of loss that are told by refugee girls. Before each affecting story, listeners are given a brief introduction that recounts how Malala met the contributor. These intros provide consistency as the same narrator, Neela Vaswani, reads them. They include several passages that have been updated for the audio edition. Deepti Gupta delivers most of the interviews of the girls, and the occasional affectations and accents she uses to differentiate them can be distracting and take away from the stories, which are affecting on their own. Nonetheless, this is a painful and powerful listening experience that imparts current and historical events with emotional depth. E.J.F. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2019]
