A Walk In My Shoes Trailer

I remember reading this book when I was a younger kid. I remember loving it and being a little more aware of the world around me as I read this. However, having reread this story as a more educated adult, I was a little uncomfortable. Evans spent years researching and interviewing refugee experiences in Australia and the camps.

The politics, which I was, quite honestly, unaware of are horrific and far-reaching, the experiences worse than anything that I could imagine. Which is where the uncomfortable feelings come from. Yet, for all of the fact that this is quite a scary retelling, this personal story is filled with hope and love. Nessa is able to retell her tale with a sense of joy. Her tale is horrifying, and she talks about her suffering, but she is also able to find her golden memories and keep those. She tells of her hope for the future and a better life. And her love for Abdul.

It gives a clear distinction to the experiences of refugees — there is the horror before and during their stay in camps, and then the confusion and feeling of uncertainty that is forced upon them afterwards.

It truly changed the way I perceive the world. Rereading it was sort of like revisiting ten year old me - and all the thoughts that came with each paragraph. Coming back to it again years after, I can start to pick faults in the book. It is not brilliantly written. I felt a little rushed in some parts.

But in the end, I almost don't want to fault it. This book influenced me so much that to attempt to critique it feels al This was a book that shaped my thinking on several topics as a ten year old. This book influenced me so much that to attempt to critique it feels almost I DID enjoy this read through! It was a personal, poignant tale of a girl in an Australian refugee camp, and the general awfulness that she had to endure.

However, it does this carefully, without exaggerating.


Because it was written in it can be very easy to think that it was so long ago, the camps aren't like that now. But somehow I think not much has changed for the better. This is an in your face, confronting book that will make you consider your views on asylum seekers. I remember thinking clearly when I was ten that all Australians should read this book. I still think so. Oct 23, Carissa rated it liked it. This book was a tough one to rate because there were things that I loved and hated about it. I'm still not sure if I would recommend anyone read it What I loved: I loved the story's setting.

This book is all about an Afghanistan family who moved to Australia and their experience in a refugee camp and assimilating into Australia. It was so very interesting to me because I felt like I got to learn about Australia and Afghanistan, two places that I know very little about. I enjoyed the characters This book was a tough one to rate because there were things that I loved and hated about it. I enjoyed the characters and the family felt real to me.

I liked reading the book through Nessa's voice and it was a very interesting journey. What I hated: The flashbacks! The first half of this book is smeared with flashback's from Nessa's life back in Afghanistan and her escape.

The constant flashbacks are jarring to the story and aggravating to read. I felt like the story was constantly getting interrupted.

The flashbacks were not told in any sort of order and often different flashback from the same experience were told. So a flashback of Nessa's experience using the restrooms on the ship from Indonesia to Australia would be told and then pages later I might read about the storm that happened on the same ship. I don't understand why the author couldn't had three parts of this book and told Nessa's experience in Afghanistan and subsequent escape first. It would have made it a MUCH more enjoyable read and a much more suspenseful read as well.

I didn't understand why this book ended where it ended either. It ended at a point where I was most curious to see how the characters dealt with a certain situation. In the end, I had to just be happy reading the afterward which told the reader what happened to the characters. This story probably would have been rated four stars because of the interesting topic and likable characters. However, the flashbacks were so annoying that I wanted to rate it two stars. They significantly slowed down towards the end of the story and so I hesitantly decided to rate the book three stars.

Aug 16, H. Stephens rated it liked it. Living in Australia, we hear a lot about 'boat people'. As such it's a very relevant issue and a topic that I was immediately interested in reading.

Though the book does have a very simplistic tone, it suits the story of a child; uncertain as to where her future is going, in a foreign land and bombarded with a language an custom she has nothing to compare to. An emotional read, I would recommend this book to anyone living in Australia or to someone having anything to do with refugees. This book Living in Australia, we hear a lot about 'boat people'. This book really gets inside the heads of these people and describes their experiences with stunning detail.
