KIRKUS REVIEW

 Hoang Anh Chau was born in a refugee camp in Malaysia during his family's odyssey from the Mekong Delta to their current home in San Rafael, California. He's now a photogenic junior-high student, youngest in a large, hard-working family. Vivid color photos and first-person text demonstrate that in most respects Hoang Anh is like any middle-class American boy, yet he maintains ties to his traditional culture (the Tet New Year's celebration is featured). With well-captioned photos in varied sizes and an unusually attractive layout, this appealing portrait has strong visual interest. Helpful phonetic pronunciations of Vietnamese words and names; glossary; map; index. (Nonfiction. 8-12)
