Description
(2011 National Book Award Winner and a 2012 Newbery Honor Book) For all the ten years of her life, Hà has only known Saigon: the thrills of its markets, the joy of its traditions, the warmth of her friends close by, and the beauty of her very own papaya tree. But the Vietnam War has finally reached her home. Hà and her family are forced to flee as Saigon falls, and they board a ship headed toward hope in America. Told in the author's short, beautiful free-verse poems, this is a moving story of one girl's year of change, dreams, grief, and healing as she journeys from one country to another, very different one, for readers 9 to 13.

"Open this book, read it slowly to savor the delicious language. This is a book that asks the reader to be careful, to pay attention, to sigh at the end."—Kathi Appelt

"After her father has been missing in action for nine years during the Vietnam War, 10-year-old Hà flees with her mother and three older brothers. Traveling first by boat, the family reaches a tent city in Guam, moves on to Florida, and is finally connected with sponsors in Alabama, where Hà finds refuge but also cruel rejection, especially from mean classmates. Based on Lai's personal experience, this first novel captures a child-refugee's struggle with rare honesty."—Booklist (starred review)
