Title: A Step From Heaven
Author: An Na

I really liked how this book is easy on the eyes and the tone is soothing. The author seems like a calm person, but yet engages the reader throughout the book.
It's about a young girl who moved from a place in Korea, Mi Gook, into America, starting life all over. Her father and mother were doing fine, and she soon received a brother. She was learning english and found herself a best friend. As she knew that having a best friend did not mean you had to tell her everything, this young protagonist did just that. She hid the fact that she did not live in such a fancy house,and lied that she had to go to the library every time the kind american family drove her home, just so that she could walk all the way home. Life was not going very well and her dad was turning abusive.
Would things be okay for this young girl as she tries to live in this american world? With her father being abusive, her brother cutting school, and her mother working her butt off, life wasn't so good.
I would recommend this book to those who would appreciate life. Because not everyone's lives are great.
