From the Inside Flap

No one would believe me but at times I would choose wartime in Saigon over peacetime in Alabama.

For all the ten years of her life, Hà has only known Saigon: the thrills of its markets, the joy of its traditions, the warmth of her friends close by . . . and the beauty of her very own papaya tree.

But now the Vietnam War has reached her home. Hà and her family are forced to flee as Saigon falls, and they board a ship headed toward hope. In America, Hà discovers the foreign world of Alabama: the coldness of its strangers, the dullness of its food, the strange shape of its landscape . . . and the strength of her very own family.

This is the moving story of one girl's year of change, dreams, grief, and healing as she journeys from one country to another, one life to the next.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth the read!
By K on 14 April 2016
Inside Out and Back Again is the story of Hà and her family, their struggles during the Vietnam War and their transition into life in Alabama after the fall of Saigon. The book also shows Hà's struggles as an immigrant child fitting into an American school, being bullied and treated like a pariah and how she deals with these issues.

It took me quite a while to read this which is surprising considering it's written in verse. But I think it was largely because, while the story was meant to be moving, I found that I could not connect with the main character at all. Much of the story is told very matter-of-factly, which is why what I enjoyed the most is how culturally rich the story was rather than the story itself, and I also liked the fact that the story came full circle.
-------------------------------
I think it is also necessary to talk about the quality of this particular edition. The pages are of poor quality; they're very thin. Towards the end the print in the book was a little faded. Also - and note that this is my personal opinion - those stickers on top aren't really stickers and are actually printed on the cover of the book and I do not like them at all. If this particular preference is shared, then I'd suggest looking at an alternate edition of the book.
