The author is very good at putting her emotion into words that we can all relate to. This is a must for your book collection. I recently bought this book and I read page of it.
I thought it was okay. My book club discussed this book and it had goo reviews. I haven't read this book but several of my friends recommend it to me. I would recommend this book. I have been reading children's books for years and the summary of this one sounded so good.
Serious story, strange read. Not bad for a middle school child trying to learn what it is like to flee your home and move to another country where everyone treats you differently.
But even that age group might like something with a little more meat. From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. I'm writing in reference to the Inside Out.. FIRST, the book is excellent. A lot of poetic devices even with the free verse, a lot of deep inference practice with students if you read with young people. BUT I ordered 14 of these books, and 5 of them are missing pages or have scrambled up pages - all beginning at the same page. The publisher needs to check quality control.
Your odds are getting a book that is just fine, but you may get one with missing chunks of missing pages. Based on the author's own experiences as a child immigrant, the poems are spare and lovely, and they manage to capture both the sense of wonder and the feeling of isolation of a newcomer in a world where everything seems different.
As a teacher, one thing I found especially interesting and heartbreaking was Ha's feeling of suddenly not being smart any more when she enrolled in her new school in America - such a common experience for gifted kids who encounter a language and culture barrier in a new home. I really enjoyed this book and think readers in grades will love it, too. It'd be great as a classroom read-aloud or for literature circles. Both books are short and poignant, and readers will come away with a much better understanding of what it feels like to land in a strange, new world and try to make that place home.
I love narrative poetry, and this book was no exception. At the height of the Vietnam War, 10 year-old Kim Ha is forced to leave Saigon with her mother and older brothers. Her father has been missing for several years, and the family continually hopes for his return. The decision to leave is heartwrenching, knowing that if they go, there will be no real way for their father to find them again, if indeed, he is still alive.
Ha's mother gives her children the option of saving one thing Once aboard the ship, the family suffers from extremely close quarters and lack of food. The boat captain's unlucky snap judgement on the best escape route means that their journey is drawn out much longer than they had anticipated, necessitating rationing.
People grow ruthless and hoard what little food they have. The ship is rescued by Americans, and the families make their way to the States. Ha and her family end up in Alabama in the early's, with racial tensions at an all time high.
After everything she's been through, Ha must endure appallingly racist bullies at school, as well as condescending teachers, who don't understand that just because she hasn't learned English perfectly yet, that doesn't mean that she isn't a bright and extremely observant girl.
Ha is desperately homesick and finds heavily-processed American food disgusting compared to the fresh papayas and traditional Vietnamese fare that she is used to. At this point, I really began to wish for some sort of break from the unrelenting sadness of the story - whether by comic relief, or a sympathetic character to lighten the tension.
I had hoped that Ha's neighbor, Miss Washington would fill the bill, but even though she's kindly and means well, ultimately she comes across as a dotty old lady who doesn't quite get it. A semi-autobiographical story, this book is simultaneously difficult to read, and very accessible. The emotional turmoil that Ha goes through makes this book quite challenging indeed, but the words flow so smoothly it's hard not to get drawn in to the tale. The writing was wonderfully crafted and made reading about the immigrant experience completely compelling.
It is based on a true story of the author, Thanhha Lai, when she immigrated to Alabama from Vietnam. If read carefully, this book has a lot of deeper meaning to it than the words can simply tell you.
It is full of culture. This book is really short and I recommend you read it in one sitting to get the most meaning from it. I have an aunt that is from Vietnam, and she told me a story of her childhood when her whole family had only one pair of shoes to share between all of them.
I understand that this novel is based on the author's own experience, but her family must have not been as poor as others. It's interesting to me to compare these two experiences of life in Vietnam. Being written in free verse really adds to the story.
I don't think there was any better way this story could have been told. This book was recommended to me by a 10 yr old girl at my school who read the book and fell in love with the story of a 10 yr old immigrant girl from Saigon. I could really identify with this book as it is similar to my experience growing up in California in the 's. We had a lot of immigrants from all over the world and we did not know how to communicate with them.
I was a loud, boisterous, tall american girl who tried to make friends with many of the quieter kids and it is only through reading this story of Ha and her journey that I can see how I probably scared these kids to death! I could not understand them or how their lives had been so affected by the change of lifestyle, food, language and the fast pace of life we take for granted.
Working in an elementary school for the past 5 years I see many kids who are immigrants and I am always careful to moderate my tone, smile and be as gentle as possible because I can see how fearful they are to their strange new environment. I wish I knew then what I know now. If I could go back and be a more helpful and caring person, I would.
Some lessons take a life time to learn. This book is beautiful. I thought I would be a crying mess the entire time I read it, but thankfully it wasn't overly sad- despite the context. Ha is a young girl who paints a picture for us of what it was like living in South Vietnam during the war. While there is definitely danger, and money is tight and times hard are everywhere- she explains that she loved her life, her house, her papaya tree.
Her family is able to escape after the country fell on a navy ship that is picked up by Americans. Her family is eventually sponsored allowed to leave the refugee camp and moves to Alabama, where they are all forced to start over, learn a new language and deal with a vastly different culture that is sometimes hostile and sometimes generous.
What I liked the most about this book is that Ha is not overly optimistic about all that has happened. Shes upset, mad, and scared. Her family helps each member through it, but it isn't easy. In fact, at one point, she says she would rather live in war torn Vietnam than in peaceful Alabama. She struggles with feeling stupid when she used to feel smart back at home. I loved when her teacher whose son died in the Vietnam war bonds with Ha and begins to protect and help her.
I love that Ha is still just a child and has to learn to deal with her anger, stubbornness and even fear of school bullies I have never read a book written in prose before, but I loved this one. The class claps On its own. So this is What dumb Feels like. I hate, hate, hate it. This was a very interesting read. Told completely through verse, it tells such a complete story that I was very impressed and surprised at how much I enjoyed it. This book tells the story of Ha, a little girl, who found herself immigrating to the United States with her family after the fall of Saigon.
It is a story about holding on to your past, your home, your family, and struggling to move forward into the future. It is a story that tells the difficult journey of leaving a place you are so attached with to finding a new home in Alabama, learning a new language, making new friends, eating food you are not familiar with and having a new life.
It was very heartfelt and very profound, and the fact that it is based on the author's experiences makes it all the more real. I enjoyed it a lot more than I expected to.
The necessary elements for a novel are characters, a setting, a plot, and a theme and this novel definitely has them. Not only that, it has a traditional story arc, which always contains a recognizable beginning, middle, and end.
Finally, Inside Out and Back Again has chapters, just like a novel would. Every novel needs characters and a setting. Washington, and the other kids in Ha's school. Ha is the protagonist, and Pink Face is the antagonist. This novel also has a setting; as a matter of fact it has several. A few of them are Saigon, Guam, Florida, and Alabama. Since the chapters identify where the next setting will be, they are especially important in this novel.
As the story unfolds, Ha is moving to the U. A, because she was fleeing her home, which is Saigon, Vietnam in a small boat. Escaping in a tiny boat was dangerous, especially during war time.

Мысли Стратмора судорожно метались в поисках решения. Всегда есть какой-то выход. Наконец он заговорил - спокойно, тихо и даже печально: - Нет, Грег, извини. Я не могу тебя отпустить. Хейл даже замер от неожиданности. - Что. - Я вызываю агентов безопасности.
Сьюзан отнеслась к словам Стратмора скептически.
Он находился на северной стороне башни и, по всей видимости, преодолел уже половину подъема. За углом показалась смотровая площадка. Лестница, ведущая наверх, была пуста.
