This resounding, evocative, and heartrending memoir is one that will sit in the pit of your stomach long after you've finished. Wang's childhood living undocumented after immigrating from China to Brooklyn is filled with hardships that need to be read to be believed. For those who are privileged enough to not live these experiences, it is of vital importance to read stories like this so that we may begin to understand the struggles, roadblocks, and failing systems faced by those who come here seeking a better life. ~ Reviewed by Virginia Edinger
