Yang’s offering is winner—a spot-on depiction of the immigrant experience in America. (Picture book. 5-10) --Kirkus Reviews
"The United States has long been a place of refuge and opportunity for immigrants from all countries. It has been the destination for millions seeking to make their dreams of a better life come true. This book celebrates our shared history of hope by telling the story of a little girl who is waiting for her green card and who meanwhile must adjust to a new language, a new school, a new way of life...even a new name.
With charming childlike voice and vivid, Chinese-influenced art, Belle Yang brings us an immigrant story especially close to her own. But, in truth, it's everyone's story of America." -- San Francisco Chronicle
