Leaving India for the United States is difficult for twelve-year-old Seema Trivedi because she lives in a very close-knit family situation. Her family is not fleeing her country, but is moving so her father can have a job that he enjoys. As Seema transitions to this new kind of life, we see the difficulties of learning a new language, making friends, and finding out how to still be yourself in a new place. We see some of Seema’s Indian culture, but mostly we see her as she learns about friendship – how to make friends and how to be a good friend in both of her homes.
