A Very Large Expanse of Sea (Pre-Recorded Audio Player)
Fall 2018 Kids Indie Next List
“This beautiful and eye-opening novel takes place one year after 9/11, and the deeply rooted racism that became more aggressive after the attack. Intentional or not, Shirin's peers treat her differently than anyone else. She tries to get by under the radar, but it's hard to do that when Ocean, a popular white boy, takes an interest in her-- and not just because of her culture. Although it's based 16 years in the past, A Very Large Expanse of Sea is still an important and relevant novel in today's world affairs, and an essential edition to every literary collection.”
