Synopsis

Synopsis

"Based on her own immigration story, Yang’s offering is a winner — a spot-on depiction of the immigration experience in America." — KIRKUS REVIEWS

It’s a long way from Taiwan to San Francisco, but Hannah’s family has made the journey because they want to make America their home. In America, Baba tells his daughter, people are free to say what they think, and children can grow up to be whatever they choose. As Hannah takes a new name, starts a new school, learns a new language, and adjusts to a new way of life, they all wait — and hope — for the arrival of the green cards that will assure they are finally home to stay.

A National Council for the Social Studies Notable Trade Book for Young People
