Almost unbearable to contemplate reading

Some books are going to be just too sad. A friend told me about Katherine Applegate's book, Home of the Brave, about a young Sudanese boy who comes as a refugee to the U.S. It is written in blank verse ( I suppose that is what is called). I just got a copy today, and read a few pages here and there. Sigh. It's what we all struggle for. So I will read on the plane next week as we set off for another trip to Burkina Faso. BTW, came across an excellent blog of short reviews of children's books- Little Blog of Stories.
