Life in Between: Creating a Home Away From Home With 6 Empowering Stories of Migration

Author Name: Anya Pallamreddy | Format: Paperback | Genre : Self-Help | Other Details

While essentially bringing light to the theme of migration, the book targets a more contemporary audience: today’s adolescents and young adults. Relocation, especially amongst this age group, can be a big change, affecting both one’s mental and physical health. The book aims to offer support in terms of finding a sense of belonging, making friends and dealing with homesickness in a new environment amongst many more issues that migrant children seem to grapple with. Through interactions with candidates from all over the world, it can evidently be concluded that most migratory experiences are made better with some guidance and the knowledge that all struggles during this time are completely normal, justified and understandable. The book includes a few real-life stories from migrant teenagers who have moved and their advice and coping mechanisms to deal with moving away that is, often accompanied by several heartrending goodbyes and, most importantly, a loss of comfort. The book is, in its own special way, a little like a “How to”, aiming to offer some sort of support and reassurance that things in life fall into place eventually. Written in a very conversational tone by someone who has observed migratory experiences first-hand, the book hopes to spark discussion about the possibility of a creation of a new life  away from home, whilst also acknowledging all the difficulty that comes with relocation.
