Even though this book was sometimes confusing because of all of GB's different relatives, it was definitely a moving story about loving a country that tears itself apart and how an escape is often more bitter than sweet.

GB was born in the United States. He did not show much interest in his Vietnamese heritage until he was in college. Both his parents left Vietnam as Americans pulled out of the war. This story is more about what forced GB's family out of Vietnam than the struggles they had in the US as immigrants.

Anyone who enjoyed Blankets, Stitches, or American Born Chinese should read this book.

Christine Is this one MS appropriate?

Lindsey there was no sex or nudity. Violence, but nothing graphic. I think it would be MS appropriate.

Christine Great! I have it on my "buy" list but I was a little iffy with it. Good non-fiction is always a priority.
