Editorial Reviews

Review

"A richly nuanced narrative that illuminates the interstices of one family's diasporic experience." ―Publisher's Weekly, starred review


"Readers will connect with this visual story on various levels or learn something new; possibly both. #Ownvoices tributes to childhood memories of home: It is as much an emotional space as a physical place." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review


"This modern tale beautifully explores what it's like for a child to move across the globe and the toll that family separations can take." ―Booklist, starred review


"A tender, emotionally resonant tale of a girl who must say goodbye to Popo, her beloved grandmother, when her family emigrates from Taiwan to the United States." --The Buffalo News


"Blackburne's nuanced narrative and Kuo's eye-catchingly hued illustrations bring readers on a heartwarming journey, providing an opportunity to explore and discuss the themes of identity, roots, connection, and emigration." - The Horn Book


"A lyrical and heartfelt tribute to the power of love across geography and generations." --Bookpage
