rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is a small gem of a book that touched my heart. It is the story of a girl who emigrates from Korea with her mother and father, and with each chapter, or really, vignette, she is growing up. The author is a first generation Korean American, and the agonies and lies that Young Ju has to deal with are painfully real.
It is a wonderful book that gives the reader a clear understanding of the trials of being a stranger in a new country, but the writing makes it a work of art.
