Aram’s Choice

By Marsha Forchuk Skrypuch
Level 5

I absolutely loved this historical fiction book. It tells the story of Aram, a young Armenian refugee living in Greece in the 1920s, and his journey to a new home in Canada. Full of beautiful sensory language, this book pulls readers in and teaches about a bleak time in history, the Armenian Genocide, in a way that is gentle and inspiring as well as informative. Readers will be touched by how Aram continues to think of others and their needs, even as his own life is turned upside down. We also recommend the sequel, Call Me Aram.
