For my children s literature class I was reuired to choose a novel from a themed list about Coming to America After I reviewed the titles and checked out their descriptions on Goodreads I settled on Drita My Homegirl by Jenny Lombard because I wanted to read a contemporary immigration story as opposed to a historical oneI don t have a lot of experience with children s literature One thing I noticed right away was that the sounds of laughter honking cars etc are put into words like Haw haw A bit off putting but I overlooked it Since this is middle grade fiction I was relieved that so much was left to the imagination not every little detail was spelled outThe characterization was strong for both protagonists Drita and Maxie I think that the alternating viewpoints really enhanced one another The use of different fonts to match the character was a subtle effect that will help students keep straight which character is talking Lombard explores the after effects of immigration and war on the Kelmendi family very realistically Another plot point regarding a bully in the classroom is also realistically handled which lends the story a lot of credibility

Drita is an immigrant to the United States from Kosova Amongst the struggle of her and her family leaving their country and everything they have ever known she is trying to find her place in school while not even knowing how to speak English Maxie living in New York City is one of her classmates who lost her mom a couple of years ago and finds herself often acting out at both home and school At first Maxie is resistant to befriending Drita but later these 4th graders find themselves paired up by their teacher Do Maxie and Drita become friendsI really enjoyed reading Drita My Homegirl I team read this book with my own 4th grade daughter The book alternates between chapters from each of the girl s voices My daughter and I had fun picking who was going to be Drita and who was going to be Maxie when readingNow I know this book is about someone who doesn t speak English and the author probably wanted to illuminate what it was like for Drita when she put Albanian text in the book but I felt it was too much By the end of the book I was over the Albanian text and uite frankly I felt it was a distracted from the story itself My daughter would get a kick out if and giggle so much listening to me try to read what it said I didn t make it a big deal that laughing at another language can be seen as disrespectful but I can see if other kids read this as a read aloud how they could get carried away and distracted waiting for the Albanian text to just get a good laughOverall I really liked the book I felt the story really shows what it may be like to come from another country both in school socially and some family struggles too Further the weaving in of the American Maxie s struggles come to show that the girl s are really not that different after allThis book was very sweet funny and best of all it was real I felt the author Jenny Lombard wrote a very realistic but still appropriate book of a topic of the struggles of immigration that all of us can use a little reminder about As Jenny wrote Even though on the outside we are different on the inside we were just the same
