1. "The Namesake" by Jhumpa Lahiri: This novel follows the journey of Gogol Ganguli, who moves from India to the U.S., where he struggles with identity issues and faces mocking from others due to his unusual name and cultural differences. 2. "Americanah" by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie: The protagonist, Ifemelu, leaves Nigeria for America and experiences a great deal of cultural shock and prejudice. She faces mockery due to her accent and adapting to American societal norms. 3. "Bend It Like Beckham" (film): Jess, a British-Indian girl, faces mockery and stereotyping in her journey to pursue football in the UK, breaking away from her traditional Indian family expectations. 4. "The Kite Runner" by Khaled Hosseini: Amir, a young Afghan boy, flees to America after the Soviet invasion and experiences isolation and the struggle of integrating into western society. 5. "The Jungle" by Upton Sinclair: This novel chronicles the plight of Lithuanian immigrants to the United States, who are often mocked and suffer terribly at the hands of exploitation and poverty. 6. "Persepolis" by Marjane Satrapi: This graphic autobiographical novel describes the author's experience of moving from Iran to Austria during the Islamic Revolution. Marjane finds herself in a strange culture where she faced mockery and ridicule for being different. 7. "Outcasts United" by Warren St. John: This book tells the story of a refugee soccer team in a small American town and their struggle with discrimination and hostility from the locals. Remember, it's important to approach stories like these with empathy and understanding, as they reflect real struggles that many people face when moving to a new country.
