Title

In the Beautiful Country

Description

Anna is excited to move from Taiwan to America, known as "the beautiful country," in this novel in verse. But that excitement is challenged by her difficulty in making friends—exacerbated by the "smelly" foods she brings to school—and understanding a new language. With her family’s restaurant also struggling, Anna must find her way and discover the true meaning of home. This is one of the books on the CALA/YALSA Taskforce's "Stories Beyond Borders: A Chinese American and Diasporic Reading List."
