My Synopsis: A girl named Ha moves to Alabama from Vietnam because of the Vietnam War and she learns many new things...
For all the ten years of her life, Hà has only 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. In America, Hà discovers the foreign world of Alabama: the coldness of its strangers, the dullness of its food . . . and the strength of her very own family.
I don't know why I posted the actual synopsis instead of being lazy and giving you the link but :)
Review: This book was excellent! It is a Newberry Honor Book and a National Book Award winner which is definitely deserved. Its written poetically which I don't really know how to describe but I kind of like those books. Its written kind of like Orchards by Holly Thompson if you've read that. This book is very beautiful and sweet and a definite reccomendation.
Next week's book is The Kid Table by Andrea Seigel
