Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When four-year-old Young Ju Park first hears the words Mi Gook — Korean for America — she is sure that they mean Heaven. But when her family moves to Southern California the following year, she finds the transition from life in Korea far from easy. The countless unexpected challenges — from learning English, to finding work, to attending school — put more and more pressure on the Park family until its fragile construction begins to splinter. Yet as Young Ju grows from child to adolescent in her new home she finds a surprising new voice — neither Korean nor American, but uniquely her own. That voice allows her to make sense of her world, and gives her the strength to succeed. A Step from Heaven is the stunning debut of an equally unique writer.
