Jared's mom loves to help people, all people, so when a refugee family from Africa loses their apartment she invites the family to come live in their house. Now Jared will have to share his room with a complete stranger. A complete stranger who may have never ridden in car, used an inside toilet, used a telephone of any kind. Jared's little sister, Mopsy, is thrilled with the idea; she thinks the refugees will be her new best friends. Even Kirk Crick, the expert from the Refugee Aid Society, warns them all of the problems the refugees may have when they come. No one is prepared for how many problems the Amabo family actually has when they arrive in New York, and no knows who these four very strange people really are. This thriller really kept me on the edge of my seat!
