Perfect for fans of Elizabeth Acevedo, Ibi Zoboi, and Erika L. Sanchez, this gorgeously written and deeply moving own voices novel is the YA debut from the award-winning author of Inside Out & Back Again. Four starred reviews!

In the final days of the Vit Nam War, Hng takes her little brother, Linh, to the airport, determined to find a way to safety in America. In a split second, Linh is ripped from her arms - and Hng is left behind in the war-torn country.

Six years later, Hng has made the brutal journey from Vit Nam and is now in Texas as a refugee. She doesn't know how she will find the little brother who was taken from her until she meets LeeRoy, a city boy with big rodeo dreams, who decides to help her.

Hng is overjoyed when she reunites with Linh. But when she realizes he doesn't remember her, their family, or Vit Nam, her heart is crushed. Though the distance between them feels greater than ever, Hng has come so far that she will do anything to bridge the gap.
