Disturbed in Their Nests is a memoir written by Alephonsion Deng, one of the Lost Boys of Sudan, and his mentor Judy A. Bernstein, covering the time Alepho, his brother Benson and cousin Leno arrived in San Diego as refugees with flashbacks to their lives in Sudan and the nine years they spent in Kenya's Refugee Camp Kakuma housing 100,000 people. Their resettlement in the United States finally happened in the summer of 2001. And talk about culture shock.... This is a must read for all Americans. We are again facing an immigration crisis in the US, and too many of us have forgotten the cost of our freedom - the assimilation of others downtrodden and homeless through no fault of their own. They must be welcomed just as most of us were at some point in history. I received a free electronic copy of this memoir from Netgalley, Alephonsion Dent and Judy A. Bernstein and Blackstone Publishing in exchange for an honest review. Thank you all for sharing your hard work with me.
