Inside Out and Back Again Inside Out and Back Again is a New York Times bestseller, a Newbery Honor Book, and a winner of the National Book Award! Inspired by the author's childhood experience of 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.

For all the ten years of her life, Hà has only 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. Hà and her family are forced to flee as Saigon falls, and they board a ship headed toward hope. In America, Hà discovers the foreign world of Alabama: the coldness of its strangers, the dullness of its food . . . and the strength of her very own family.

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 Hà's story.

    After losing my grandmother who was like a mother to me just a little over a month ago, this is the first book I've read. Trying to find ways to be her example, I decided to read this book after I had found, bought, and sent it home as a Birthday gift to my soon to be 13 year old sister. Kim Há's mother and neighbor Missis Washington, remind me of the warm heart my grandmother had. It filled my heart with happiness, almost as she was reading me the story. She always taught us to be good to others, to never judge the unfortunate, and to always be grateful. Something kids nowadays seem to care nothing for. I'm sure my sweet sister will love is as much as I do at 26.

    With the refugee crisis everywhere and the voicing of millions of opinions, I can only say that this book certainly made me think. It made me feel and it made me cry. I wish the leaders of all the countries in the world could read this book. I wish the televised blowhards in America could read this book as well

    You really must take your time with this book. If you rush through it you will literally be finished with this book in an hour. But if you really dissect this book and digest it, you can see a whole different side of the book full metaphors and feelings. If you are to understand the entire experience of Ha and her family leaving Vietnam and fitting in in their new home, you HAVE to take your time with this book. HAVE TOO!

    I to spent time in Vietnam fighting in the war I saw things I wish I could forget but they still stay with me. Reading this story made me remember the beautiful country and the people I met when I was there I saw the hardship and there struggles. Reading this story made me realize the struggles they had coming to America. I just wish we could have saved there country for them. An American who wishes he could of made a difference .
