Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In America's Complete Diabetes Cookbook, each of the 250 recipes has complete nutritional information as well as Exchange Lists for Meal Planning? Managing diabetes doesn't have to mean eating bland food forever. Based on a true story, Saoussan and her family flee a war-torn Lebanon, where bombs and gunshots were part of a daily life. Now safe in her new country, Saoussan starts school. But not knowing any English made the simplest things difficult: to go to the washroom, Saoussan would crawl to the door when the teacher's head was turned and wait until someone opened it. Saoussan must adapt to a new culture in a much safer world.

Synopsis:

A young girl whose family moved to Canada from war-torn Beirut writes to her reading buddy about all of the adjustments she had to make in her life. Based on the life of Saoussan Askar, who moved to Ontario in 1991.
