Summary, etc.:
"Inspired by the author's childhood experience as a refugee--fleeing Vietnam after the fall of Saigon and immigrating to Alabama--this coming-of-age debut told in verse has been celebrated for its touching child's-eye view of family and immigration. Hà has only ever known Saigon: the thrills of its markets, the joy of its traditions, and the warmth of her friends close by. But now the Vietnam War has reached her home. Hà and her family are forced to flee as Saigon falls, and they board a ship headed toward hope--toward America."--Amazon.com.
