it was ok

2.5 stars. Fast but unsatisfying read. This book had huge potential and touched on a number of very interesting topics: immigration, culture loss, orphan migration, family relations, etc. Sadly nothing herein was explored in any depth or given the weight it deserved. I found the story telling from the nine year old's point of view especially problematic in that it felt like an adult's perspective rather than the child's experience.
