Young Ju’s life is changed when her parents decide to move to America, or Mi Gook as they say in Korea, in hopes of a better life. Young Ju must leave her grandmother, her Halmoni, behind though. In America, Young Ju becomes and older sister to her brother Joon. She describes a struggle in being a girl and being the oldest sibling. Also weaved throughout the book is the abuse she and her family must endure from her father. The book, ranging from age three to college, describes the adjustment that occurs since moving from Korea. The story was an inspirational story of how Young Ju found identity, neither Korean nor American, but somewhere in between. Though, this book is designed for a specific reader and may not be one for everyone. I found her style of writing to be underdeveloped for my taste in books.
