TOGETHER, WE ARE
Omar and his younger brother, Hassan, have spent most of their lives in Dadaab, a refugee camp in Kenya.
Life is hard there: never enough food, achingly dull, and without access to the medical care Omar's nonverbal brother needs.
So when Omar has the opportunity to go to school, he knows it might be a chance to change their future...
but it would also mean leaving his brother, his only remaining family member every day.
This intimate, important, and unforgettable graphic novel is about family, home, and the day-to-day life of a refugee, as told to New York Times bestselling author/artist Victoria Jamieson by Omar Mohamed, the Somali man who lived the story and went on to help so many other refugees!
