This was an insightful biography and written in a highly readable style.  I really enjoyed getting to know of of the USA's most notorious traitors a bit better.....History rocks!

In this highly lauded story (in poetry format) we get to know Ha, who escapes from Vietnam with her family and comes to the US.  We watch the struggles they go through and how they adapt.  Lai does a great job of putting the words together just right so that the reader feels what Ha feels, and the lesson of acceptance as well as how hard it is to be a refugee is there without hitting you over the head.
