Going Home, Coming Home/Ve Nha, Tham Que Huong Rating:

Ami Chi is traveling to Vietnam, where the streets are crowded with scooters and the fruit are shaped like dragons and stars. Her parents still consider Vietnam home. But Ami Chi is confused. How can home be a place you've never been? She finds her answer in the green rice paddies that blanket the countryside, in the bustling Cho Lon market, and in the quiet rooms of her grandmother's house. Vietnam may be nothing like America, but it feels strangely familiar. Before long, Ami Chi finds that you can travel very far and still find yourself at home.

"Most eloquent is the beautiful close-up of Ami Chi combing Grandmother's hair. Immigrant kids everywhere will recognize the space across generations and the idea that home is not one place." -- Booklist
