Little FamilyA powerful novel about young people in a conflict scarred land struggling to replace the homes they have lost with the one they have created togetherHidden away from a harsh outside world five young people have improvised a home in an abandoned airplane a relic of their country’s chaos Elimane the bookworm is as street smart as he is wise Clever. A family not of blood but one put together by circumstances not in their control They live in an abandoned airplane in a unnamed country in Africa How they came to be here we only learn from veiled hints throughout the story They take care of each other have learned to survive by shoplifting taking food and other opportunities that present Living on the margins of life they are the unseen or those that are so nondescript they can fit in anywhere We are provided a few clues on the state of their country what is happening within All goes along well until one received a special opportunity and Khouda finds herself with the moneyed and yearns for a new better lifeSuch tenderness in the language understanding in the portrayal of her charactersas i read the dread i was feeling and the tension mounted I knew the book had to end and I was so afraid for this little family How many of us don't look past the visual deciding a person is one way because of how they dress or talk I really think is all countries as this book makes clear a little kindness and understanding would not go amiss How easy is it to dismiss to not let oneself see the people behind the front ARC from Edelweiss

Khoudiemata maneuvers to keep the younger kids athletic pragmatic Ndevui; thoughtful Kpindi; and especially their newest member Namsa safe and fed When Elimane makes himself of service to the shadowy William Handkerchief it seems as if the little family may be able to keep the world at bay and their household intact But when Khoudi comes under th. This started out engrossing but unfortunately failed to hold my attention It's a story of five young people who having lost their families create one of their own together living in an abandoned airplane in the jungle They use their wits to survive working odd jobs when they can and stealing food and other supplies when the opportunity arises Their ingenuity was fun to witness their creativity in survival knowing no end Unfortunately what started out as interesting and a story about all of the youth became centered around Khoudi who longs to be what she thinks of as a normal woman hanging out with friends going out for drinks dating And this predictably morphs into a romance A femalemale romance And that was the end of my interest in the story A few things happen in the last half of the book concerning the others but not enough to hold my attention It felt like a chore to reach the end The author writes very well but I just didn't like the story  It would have been nice to learn about each of the characters' history in order to understand them though perhaps the author has his reasons for not going into their backgrounds5 stars for the first few chapters but those twinkling stars just kept fading their light down to just one dim star by the end  I'll average the rating out to 3
