I Needed a Neighbour

By Patricia St. John
Level 7

Patricia St. John, with her skillful storytelling, tells the story of one family in famine-stricken Africa. I had never read a book about refugees or refugee camps, so I was grateful for the knowledge and insight that I gained through reading the book. This story has some intense and sad parts. Although I do not feel it is too graphically treated, I would recommend the book for children 10 years and older. The book features clean language, Christian messages, and a compelling story.
