Journalist Brooke Hauser is the author of “The New Kids: Big Dreams and Brave Journeys at a High School for Immigrant Teens” — out in paperback this week. The book, which grew out of an article that Hauser wrote for The New York Times, chronicles a year in the life of five students at the International High School at Prospect Heights in Brooklyn, NY.
In a recent email interview, Hauser focused on the experience of one group of courageous young newcomers: refugees who have fled war, persecution and political upheaval.
