I love this book because its not a book you'd read every day. It is poems, coming together, and making this story. The author wrote this mainly about her life, because, she too witnessed the end of the Vietnam war, fled to Alabama with her family and had a missing father. Thanhha Lai really captured Hà's emotions and feelings. It is really well written and I could read books like this everyday.
I admire how the author wrote these little poems that are hard to understand at first, but after reading the next two pages you understand the story. I love the book because there are many parts of the story: my favorite is during the Vietnam war. When I read the book, I really felt like I was in the war. I also love the emotions and feelings there are in the story.
Roysel 03 gradeI love this book it has peaceful poems but some of the poems are sad and some are greatful I readed one about some ones dad went on a naviy mishion and its like my uncle his 32 years old and he is also on a mishion and I feel sad because his away from me and I felt sad about that poem so it was a peaceful book for me and I loved it. I also liked the part about the papa tree and that boy loved that tree like my grandma she loves trees.

Great write-up. I just got this book from the library. I normally don't read novel-in-verse but I have heard such great things about this book.
