  沒有人會相信這些話
  但是  有時候
  我寧願選擇住在  戰爭的西貢
  而不是  和平的阿拉巴馬

  在她十歲的生命當中,金河只知道西貢這個地方:市場裡的興奮喧囂、傳統節慶的喜樂、她與好友的溫暖情誼……以及她心愛的美麗木瓜樹。但是,戰火已經逼近家門。隨著西貢的陷落,金河和家人被迫逃離家鄉,趁夜登船駛向未來。抵達美國阿拉巴馬之後,金河發現這是一個完全不同的世界:鄰居的冷漠疏離、食物的單調乏味、城市風景的奇特怪異……卻也因此激發了全家人的生命強度與韌性。

  小女孩踏上尋找新家園的旅程,在不長不短的一年裡,她走過了變化、夢想、哀傷和療癒,為自己的生命故事譜出了動人的新樂章。

Inside Out and Back Again is a #1 New York Times bestseller, a Newbery Honor Book, and a winner of the National Book Award
Inspired by the author's childhood experience as a refugee--fleeing Vietnam after the Fall of Saigon and immigrating to Alabama--this coming-of-age debut novel told in verse has been celebrated for its touching child's-eye view of family and immigration.
H has only ever known Saigon: the thrills of its markets, the joy of its traditions, and the warmth of her friends close by. But now the Vietnam War has reached her home. H and her family are forced to flee as Saigon falls, and they board a ship headed toward hope--toward America.
This moving story of one girl's year of change, dreams, grief, and healing received four starred reviews, including one from Kirkus which proclaimed it "enlightening, poignant, and unexpectedly funny."
An author's note explains how and why Thanhha Lai translated her personal experiences into H 's story. This paperback edition also includes an interview with the author, an activity you can do with your family, tips on writing poetry, and discussion questions.
