Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sixteen-year-old Danny Vo is caught between two cultures-the American world of his Houston high school and his Vietnamese home life. Life gets even more complicated when Dannys cousin Sang Le comes to live with them after spending years in a reeducation camp in Vietnam. Failing school and unable to get a job, Sang Le joins a Vietnamese gang. Danny must also contend with another dangerous gang-the white supremacist skinheads that his new girlfriends brother belongs to. “Excellent characterizations and a complex, believable plot are blended into a moving story of the immigrant experience.”--Booklist
