Come On In: 15 Stories About Immigration and Finding Home

by Adi Alsaid

The fiction, Come On In: 15 Stories about Immigration and Finding Home, edited by Adi Alsaid, was a very breathtaking book. Books like these aren’t the type of books I’d easily be attracted to, but the second I looked at the cover of the book, I just couldn’t resist myself. This story has 15 different authors that wrote their own short stories. All these authors wrote such fascinating stories that I just couldn’t put the book down. Especially, the first short story, All The Colors Of Goodbye, written by Nafiza Azad, was so awe-inspiring to read. Although the short story is very upsetting, it’s still so amazing. All the other short stories were also super fascinating, each short story I read I couldn’t even put the book down.

The second I finished the book, after taking in all the stories and all the messages in, I can say I was very emotional. With all that emotion going through me, all I wanted to do was just read the book all over again. As I mentioned before, I would’ve never read a book like this, and honestly I never would have thought there would be so many stories by different authors in one book. But the second I read all the stories from all the 15 authors, I honestly am so glad I read this book. I have no idea whose idea it was to write a story like this, but I’m guessing it was Adi Alsaid idea, and I will say that such an amazing idea. I definitely recommend this book for people over the age of 12 and up, especially younger adults. Nevertheless, I rate this book a 5/5 stars!
