Description

Vietnam-born author Thanhha Lai bursts onto the literary scene with Inside Out & Back Again-her National Book Award-winning debut. Written in rich, free-verse poems, this moving tale follows a young Vietnamese girl as she leaves her war-torn homeland for America in 1975. With Saigon about to fall to the communists, 10-year-old HA, her mother, and brothers are forced to flee their beloved city and head to the United States. But living in a new country isn't easy for HA, and she finds adapting to its strange customs ever challenging.

Professional reviews

"In 1975, 10-year-old Hˆ escapes war-torn Vietnam with her mother and four older brothers. Narrator Doan Ly instantly captures the duality of language as we step out of Hˆ's old life and into the foreign world of Alabama. Ly transitions deftly between Hˆ's fluent thoughts, which are represented in English, and her stunted ability to communicate aloud in her new language. Both modes of communication are peppered with Vietnamese words whose beauty and fullness make the listener appreciate how "snakelike" English feels, and why Hˆ resents being forced to learn the sibilant language. Ly's reading of this Newbery Honor book captures the heart of the novel and its free-verse poetry. A.M.P. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
