Beautiful story about a Vietnamese family who flees the country and end up in Alabama. I don't normally like stories in verse, but I thoroughly enjoyed this one.
This story succeeds in reaching its implied goal--to tell us what it's like to be a child in a war-torn country and to be forced to emmigrate to a strange country. Yes, it's told in free-verse style and format, but it's still down-to-earth. Poignant without self-pity, tempered with a bit of humor, Lai's highly autobiographical book will give most American children a view they will never (thankfully) experience first-hand.
