Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Written by Newbery Medalist, National Book Award winner, and Laura Ingalls Wilder Medal recipient Katherine Paterson

Park can't figure out why his mother refuses to talk about his father who died in Vietnam. Park has no memory of him. But he is determined to find out the answers to his questions. When Park's search finally takes him to his gradfather's farm in rural Virginia, he meets obstacles beyond his imagining. Instead of being welcomed as the long lost heir, he is taunted by a young Vietnamese girl. Who is she, and what is she doing on the family farm? And will Park be able to accept the ultimate truth he has sought?

Synopsis:

"Paterson offers her young readers a glimpse of the Vietnam War from what might be considered their own perspective: that of the next generation, the children of veterans, those for whom Vietnam is a vague historical event".--The New York Times.
