Inside Out & Back Again tells the story of ten-year-old Hà and her family, forced to flee Saigon during the Vietnam War. When they relocate to Alabama, Hà discovers that life is very different in America than it was in Vietnam. Written as a novel in verse, this book explores the resilience of the human spirit, the bond of family, and coming-of-age in a new land.
Inside Out & Back Again won the 2011 National Book Award for Young People's Literature and was a 2012 Newbery Honor Book. Appropriate for grades 5 and up.
