Narrator Sura Siu establishes a thoughtful voice for 10-year-old Anna, who moves from Taiwan to the U.S. with her mother and father in 1980 to pursue new opportunities. But when Anna and Ma arrive in Los Angeles and meet Ba, their dreams quickly fade. They realize that the business they purchased was not as successful as they were led to believe and struggle to make ends meet. At school, Anna faces teasing and racial slurs from her peers. Siu beautifully captures the waves of emotion Anna feels as she navigates all of the new challenges in her life. Listeners will be drawn into this story of family, immigration, hope, and perseverance. M.D. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2022]
