Interesting story told in verse about a young girl's experience leaving Vietnam at the end of the Vietnamese war and coming to the US with her family. It is a fast, easy read through which upper elementary students could experience coming to a new land with a new language and new customs. It may help them empathize better with ESL students in their own schools and neighborhoods, always a good thing.
