Book Summary

"Inside Out & Back Again"

From Saigon to Alabama, Inside Out

and Back Again is the story of a year

in the life of Hà, a ten-year-old girl

who flees Vietnam with her mother

and brothers, in hopes of escaping the Vietnam War and building new—and safer—lives for themselves in the

United States.

Written as a series of short poems,

it is a sparse and honest narrative

that follows Hà as she leaves behind

the only home she's ever known to travel by boat to America. She may have left war behind, but plenty of difficulty awaits, and Hà and her family struggle

to find their footing in the United States.


At the end of the year, though—and as the book ends—they're finally getting their bearings, all holding onto hope

that life will keep getting better.
