Summary
Fleeing from political violence in Venezuela, Amina and her family have settled in the United States. Sarah, adopted, is desperate to know her Korean birth parents. Maya is adapting just fine to life in the U.S. and wishes her strict Kazakh parents would follow suit. Adrian's new friends have some spooky -- and hilarious -- misconceptions about his Romanian origins. Martine is fighting proud of her Haitian roots, while Sopeap embraces her Cambodian heritage more cautiously... Whether they've transitioned from Mexico to the United States or from Ramallah to New Mexico, the characters in this anthology have all ventured far and have faced innumerable challenges. Hundreds of teen immigrants arrive on U.S. soil every year, every one of them unique. Here are ten unforgettable short stories -- written by acclaimed, award-winning authors for young adults -- that reflect this stunning diversity
