Take 5: A List of YA Lists on Refugees
Instead of putting together our own list of YA titles that feature refugees here at TLT, I thought I would instead direct you to several other lists that are already out there because this is an important topic and we should all make sure we have some good titles in our collections to represent this important issue.
Nerdy Book Club List of Refugees
Stacked: YA Stories About Refugees
Stacked: 3 On a Theme: Refugees in YA Nonfiction
Scottish Book Trust: 12 Teens Books About Refugees
The Educator’s Room: 5 YA Novels to Understand Refugees
There is also a list of books tagged refugees on Goodreads, but this is a user generated list so you’ll want to investigate the titles a little more.
