A Step from Heaven
this book was very (view spoiler)[good. (hide spoiler)] i didn't think i was going to like it because it started out in the voice of (view spoiler)[a five-year-old, (hide spoiler)]which was too (view spoiler)[twee (hide spoiler)] for me, but it thankfully changed as the female child-character grows up to show the slow acclimitization and americanization of a korean family and the struggles and triumphs they undergo, while still holding on to their roots. it is actually a very graceful and delicate story, but it does not shy away from certain (view spoiler)[harsh realities. (hide spoiler)] i really loved this book, and while it is true i am only writing this review right now because (view spoiler)[i am so enamored with this new feature and want to test-drive it, (hide spoiler)] anyone interested in immigrant stories should read this children's book, even if they are (view spoiler)[a grown-up. (hide spoiler)]!!!
