Über diesen Titel


"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, bestselling author of Newbery Honor Book The Underneath

"American and Vietnamese characters alike leap to life through the voice and eyes of a ten-year-old girl--a protagonist so strong, loving, and vivid I longed to hand her a wedge of freshly cut papaya."--Mitali Perkins, author of Bamboo People

"Lai's spare language captures the sensory disorientation of changing cultures as well as a refugee's complex emotions and kaleidoscopic loyalties."--The Horn Book

"In this free-verse narrative, Lai is sparing in her details, painting big pictures with few words and evoking abundant visuals."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Newbery Honor author Lai delivers a funny, realistic tale of family and friendship and culture clashes. A touching tale of preteen angst and translation troubles."--Kirkus Reviews

"This book is at once funny, thoughtful, and stunningly engaging. I loved, loved, loved it! Can't wait for my own daughter--and every reader who is lucky enough to get their hands on it--to step inside Mai's two, very different, worlds."--Jacqueline Woodson, author of the National Book Award-winning Brown Girl Dreaming

"This valentine of a novel may jumpstart questions in young readers about the people and places of their families' past."--Washington Post

"Thanhha Lai is so amazing."

"Holy cats, I LOVE this book! I loved Mia so much--she's one of the best characters I've read in a while. Sarcastic, smart, and so, so funny. And she brings a wonderful sense of levity to a beautiful, sad story."

"Lai convincingly shows Mai's slow transformation from spoiled child to someone who can look beyond herself with compassion. Her strong-willed personality makes her an entertaining narrator; readers will happily travel anywhere with Mai."--The Horn Book
