USBBY Outstanding International Book Pick: Night Guard by Synne Lea

Friendship, fear, loneliness — these are things that are universally experienced but difficult to describe. In this arresting poetry collection, Synne Lea explores these concepts and more through the thoughts and experiences of a family. As the family members examine their connections with each other and the world around them, they gain a deeper appreciation of love and friendship and learn how to reach beyond the confines of their own isolation.

Accompanied by breathtaking artwork, these enchanting poems will stay with readers long after they have turned the final page.
