Newcomer Novels: Young Adult Books on the Immigrant Experience

Settling in a new country can be an overwhelming experience full of new challenges.  Canada is a country built on immigration and the stories of this transition to a new home are central to our multicultural society.  Whether you’re a newcomer to Canada or merely seeking a better understanding of the immigrant experience, Wellington County Library has a number of Young Adult titles that deal with this theme of new beginnings.  

Do you have a newcomer experience that you would like to share?  Do you think there is such a thing as a Canadian national identity? Share your thoughts with us in the comments section!
