Teen Book Review

Review by Isabella, Rohnert Park Branch

Inside Out And Back Again by Thanhha Lai


For all her life, Ha has only known the comfort of her home in Saigon, its culture, and her friends.  But when the Vietnam war reaches Saigon, Ha goes to America with her family.  America is confusing and Ha's life is turned inside out – and back again when she starts to make some friends and settles in.

I picked it up because it won two awards.

I finished it because I liked the story.  It was engaging from the beginning and had many details.

I'd recommend it to my friends since I know we all like the same type of books.
