Drita, My Homegirl

Drita, My Homegirl - Jenny Lombard I picked this up off the shelf while looking for a book to read my fourth and fifth graders. Ultimately, I decided not to because I don't think I can pronounce the Albanian words and it would be doing the story a disservice to mangle or skip them, but I'm very glad I took the time to read this for myself because it was wonderful and I'll be recommending it to all of my students to read for themselves.
