An absolutely beautiful semi-autobiographical novel about a young girl ripped from her life in 1970s vietnam during the fall of Saigon. Written entirely in verse, it is lyrical and poignant while at the same time remaining interesting and entertaining. While this book is probably aimed at about grades 3 - 6, I am afraid this story and format may appeal more to adults than its intended audience. A great read none the less (and I can now say I DO read poetry!)
