it was amazing

I had the pleasure to read ESCAPING THE TIGER as an ARC and I have to admit that I was wary of not being able to understand the culture. However, Laura Manivong managed to weave the familiar and the alien into a tapestry that made me laugh, worry, and clap for joy. While I felt Vonlai's pain at being an outsider, I never felt like an outsider myself.

This is the kind of book I wish I'd had as a kid and the kind of book all kids will enjoy. A wonderful debut.
