@booksofwonder would like to wish a very big congratulations to Thanhha Lai for her novel Inside Out & Back again, which last night won the National Book Award for young people’s literature.
About Inside Out & Back Again:No one would believe me but at times I would choose wartime in Saigon over peacetime in Alabama.
For all the ten years of her life, HÀ has only known Saigon: the thrills of its markets, the joy of its traditions, the warmth of her friends close by … and the beauty of her very own papaya tree.
But now the Vietnam War has reached her home. HÀ and her family are forced to flee as Saigon falls, and they board a ship headed toward hope. In America, HÀ discovers the foreign world of Alabama: the coldness of its strangers, the dullness of its food, the strange shape of its landscape … and the strength of her very own family.
