Lisa's experiences at a refugee camp for children and her happier time staying with a Catholic family [in Journey to America] are vivid and poignant. This reads more like a documentary script than a novel, but it is a dramatic script, well-written and perceptive in describing the tensions and reactions of people in a situation of stress.
