In this versatile collection, a fifteen-year-old American girl of color takes us on a surprising journey as she explores the currently urgent issues of transnationalism, migration, language, family, and culture. Beautiful and inspiring, these remarkably mature and thoughtful poems trace the author's own path to self-realization and discovery; in the process of reading them inevitably we come to our own surprising discoveries.
