School Library Journal Review

Gr 5 Up-In Beirut, the residents of an apartment building huddle in one room, hiding from sniper rifles and nearby shelling. As the author worries about her absent parents, she describes each neighbor, piecing together the effects of Lebanon's civil war. With stark black-and-white artwork, the confined action captures the solemnity and impotence of the war's victims. © Copyright 2016.
