This is a beautiful story about a family fleeing Vietnam and coming to the United States for a better life.  The story illustrates what life as an immigrant is like and the challenges adjusting to a new country.  The characters are Huoug who is mother to Tuan and Binh.  It's told from each of the characters perspectives and my favorite part is how living in America has impacted each character differently. I really enjoyed this one.
