Little House on the Prairie for the rest of the world.
Reviewed in the United States on March 8, 2020
Oh my gosh. Linda Sue Park has written the version of Little House on the Prairie for everyone else, the ones who aren't white, and cute, and fit into what most people think of living on the prairie in the late 1800s. Park even says that was her intent.
Well researched, well written book about a girl who is half-Chinese who travels with her widowed father to an area very much like De Smit of the Laura Ingles Wilder fame. There she encounters all the prejudice that is all too prevalent at that time.
Read this in one day, I could not put it down. Through it all Hanna keeps her composure, remembers what her mother always taught her, and moves on.
Highly, highly recommend this book.
