are immigrants There is not much in between It is rare or it does not stand out Forimmigrants There is not much in between It is rare or it does not stand out For we have a lot of my first English word I spoke was cat apple ie My Name Is YoonOne Green Apple or hyphenated cultureal American kids who refuse to be identified with their heritage to stay with their Americans identity It is like speaking English solves all problems Ask Me No uesions educates audience who are not familiar with honest reality of people with Alien status with visas and legal documents Whole fear around having parents seperated from two girls with possible direction to be deported to Bangladeshi centers the story and other peer bullying pressure teen s desire to be successful are realistically portrayed Students with visa will make great connection with this bookAlso 911 book list needs to include book like this in addition to books from American sides "I absolutely loved Ask Me No uestions It teaches the importance and significance of family "absolutely loved Ask Me No uestions It teaches the importance and significance of family fighting to do what is right no matter how difficult it may be It also teaches just how much a person can grow and how they are much than just their surface Nadira for example describes herself as slow fat and lazy but in actuality she is a courageous loving daughter who fights for the things she loves and believes in Nadira progressed and improved vastly as the story continued At first she was whiny and irritable at times and often grew jealous of her older sister of Naisha almost letting the jealousy grow and thrive in her stomach it s vines poisonous and the thorns poking holes in her morals and values But she let the jealousy go and let it pass as she breathed out though her nose riding the waves of her breath She decided to help her father stay strong for the family and prevailed all of the hardships that came with fighting for her father s case Nadia was a strong character in many ways staying strong when her sister gave in her sister letting her uncontrollable fear swallow her whole She loved her family so much she risked losing everything to help them and to make their futures bright and overflowing with hope and happiness This book teaches everyone a very important lesson and I think everyone should read it drops mic I think this is a great book and I loved it Nadira and her family is trying to get used to their new life and I was thinking so much how hard it should ve been to try to do their best every moment but one thing that they couldn t get away from was their own country Bangladesh Aisha is a brave girl in this book and she is an A girl but one thing that she i I read this book because the blurb had a powerful meaning in my point of view It shows how much the main character and her family was suffering to live For being illegal citizens the main character couldn t even tell her best friend about their problems and that they were illegal In this book I learned that no matter how bad our situation don t like it get in our way of happiness In this book it says A flicker of tension twitches between us Five times on the way to school Aisha told me not to say anything about our trip to the border not even to Lily Yee my best friend at school Budhos 30 Since the main character Nadira and her sister were illegal citizens they wanted to travel over to Canada for a better life with their family without feeling the anxiety of people finding out about them But turn out when they went there they were rejected because too many people had already came Although the family is like this they either had to lie or just act like nothing happen with a smile covering it up This may be hard but this is how Nadira and her family lives In conclusion from the book I learned that lying may be a bad thing to do there s a reason behind it To avoid to lie ou either cover it up with smile act like nothing happen or without a choice lie for our own goo. To carry on as if everything is the same The teachers at Flushing High don't ask any uestions but Aisha falls apart Nothing matters to her any not even college It's up to Nadira to be the strong one and bring her family back together agai. Desh on a tourist visa and ended up staying illegally after the visa expired The family did try to become legal and met with some problems and then just let it go and stayed in the US anyways The novel tells the story of their attempt to seek asylum in Canada and what happens when they are sent back to the US and the father is detained as an illegal alien For most of the book I was distracted from the story by the author s construction of the story In the beginning Nadira is simply an observer of the events watching and inwardly criticizing the actions of her older sister As the drama unfolds and things become critical for the family Nadira begins to react to things and take an active role in seeking a resolution While this construction is perfectly understandable within the confines of the story the extreme character changes that take place in Nadira and her sister Aisha detract from the story s plausibility Aisha is the star pupil in the beginning of the story as the challenges come into their lives she retreats from the world Nadira begins as a shy loner envious of her older sister and ends self confident but also disparaging of her sister Both characters go from one extreme to another all used to portray the author s extreme view of their experiences It is an interesting story but the construction is weak and distracting Nadira s family emigrated to the US from Bandgladesh a few ears ago Now they are living in New York City on expired visas hoping to realize their dream of becoming legal US citizens But 911 changes everything Suddenly being Muslim looking different and speaking with an accent means that The Divers' Game you are a suspected terroristWhen Nadira s father is arrested at the USCanadian border Nadira and her college bound motivated and smart sister Aisha are told to continue on as if nothing has happened But even though their teachers don t ask any uestions or pry Aisha falls apart Nothing matters to her any as she sees her dreams of college drifting awayNow it s up to uiet Nadira to be the strong one and hold her family togetherThis book is so important because it is easy to forget whenou read articles in the paper about new immigration laws that immigrants are people with families and hopes and dreams
hardworking good people who want to do thingsgood people who want to do things the right and legal way but also want to provide the best life possible for their familiesThis book is smart and powerful and it stings and most importantly it makes ou think I won t be able to read another article about immigration laws without seeing Nadira and Aisha in my mind Nadira is that fat daughter She is also the slow daughter the one who is slow to speak and uick to feel She is constantly compared to her sister Aisha Aisha is the perfect sister She is the sister who is going places and the one who impressed everyone with her knowledge and her ability to adapt After the arrest of her father and facing the possibility of deportation for being undocumented the familial roles of these two siblings is flipped It is up to Nadira to retain the amount of hope needed to help her family through this timeI cried real actual tears reading this book I love reading books that make me think of other people and their experiences I love having "the knowledge of what others deal with and how they live This book gave me all of that understanding and Ironically "knowledge of what others deal with and how they live This book gave me all of that understanding and Ironically could relate to both Nadira and Aisha in this book I call it Ironic because usually when ou read a book ou can only relate to one person since the characters are usually so different In this book although the two main characters were very different they were also very similar They both had this feeling of discomfort because of their legal status and their social status This is completely understandable because as teenagers I don t think there is ever really a point where ou feel Instructor's manual for Selected topics in mathematics by Edward L Spitznagel Jr you fit in completelyFOr the rest of my review click here I look at her amazed She s American born I can tell by her accent and the way she holds herself I didn t even knowou could do something like that I sure didn t know a girl could do something like that But how do A Bush Calendar you kowou want to be a geologist I ask She smiles Ing legal US citizens But after 911 everything changes Suddenly being Muslim means ou are dangerous a suspected terrorist When Nadira's father is arrested and detained at the US Canadian border Nadira and her older sister Aisha are told. A Muslim girl from Bangladesh has her life turned upside down after 911 when all Muslim men from certain middle eastern countries are reuired to register with the US government and show valid IDsHer family has long out stayed their travel visa and have been living successful if illegal lives in the United States Her father works in a restaurant and her older sister has been nominated to be her high school s valedictorianBut now all of that success is in peril Her family has two choices drive to Canada and ask for amnesty OR continue to live illegally in the US and risk serious conseuences if discoveredIn an effort to do the right thing her family drives to Canada and is turned away only to be detained when they try to re enter the States Her mother stays on the border for many months waiting to see what will happen while the girls return home to finish out the school ear though what college would possibly accept an illegal alien Why even study if they could be deported back to a place that offers little opportunity for educated womenThis was an eye opening book to read with immigration issues constantly being debated in the evening news It certainly brought to light the plight of decent hard working illegals that are trying to carve out a life in the shadows blending in with communities but never really feeling secure or eualA must read for grades 7 10 This book was terrible I HATE saying that Looking at my reviews it s clear that I m not typically an extremely critical reviewer But this book is awful And it s a shame because the topic it dealt with seems so importantThere were a lot of inconsistencies within the book The narrator is 14 ear old Nadira and it really felt like a "14 Year Old Wrote "year old wrote book I had no idea what the time span of the book was sometimes events that should have happened a few weeks ago were referred to as the other day which I think is unclear The family dynamic is set up from the very beginning Nadira s older sister 17 ear old Aisha is the star of the family skinny smart aggressive and Nadira is the bitter ounger fatter slower sister She immediately starts complaining from the beginning so there s not enough time for me to build up any sympathy for her character I end up just finding her annoying And Aisha is a bitch so when she starts having her breakdown I don t care about her either It was just a really weird way to set up a book that should have been about sympathizing with the characters And then there s this weird issue with Nadira s friend Lily Lily s mom believes her husband is cheating on her with a manicurist form their nail salon they happen to be Korean and they own two dry cleaners and a nail salonhmmm and so Nadira spontaneously decides to spy
on this manicurist so she sneaks into herthis manicurist so she sneaks into her and finds the answer TOO EASY And out of nowhere It was a completely unnecessary addition to the story And then Lily disappears from the book after that The biggest issue I have with this book is the lack of a bibliography The author says that this story is based on true events I completely believe that but she gives no bibliography no way to learn about this subject or this issue THAT is needed when ou say a book is based on true events especially political events I think people believe that since they call it Fiction they don t have to prove that it s based on anything I don t believe that s how it should be Anyway I was really disappointed in this book Also the title Ask Me No uestions There were very few uestions asked that were dramatized in the book anyway This story could have been tumultuous exciting The title is such a great reference to how illegal immigrants must feel but that part wasn t dramatized at all As I said before I feel like this book was written by a 14 The Latinos of Asia: How Filipino Americans Break the Rules of Race year old girl who is attempting to write a book for the first time It should have been polished I think what arnaud said is false I highly disagree I think it had no structure plus Arnaud rates five stars for every bookWhat is the difference Supported by Aris This story is told in first person from the point of view of aoung girl in the ninth grade Nadira her family came to the US from Bangla. You forget You forget Punainen kuin veri you don't really exist here that this isn'tour home Since emigrating from Bangladesh fourteen ear old Nadira and her family have been living in New York City on expired visas hoping to realize their dream of becom.
