Out of stock
After a long, cramped voyage across the Pacific, ten-year-old Gim Lew must pass a grueling oral test if he is to join his father in America. It will require learning every detail of his native Chinese village (including the number and location of his neighbors' windows) and, harder still, speaking without a stammer. "If my memory didn't fail me, I knew my tongue would. And then we'd lose . . . everything." Based on interviews with Laurence Yep's father and research on his family's immigration history. Author's note. Further reading. Bibliography. Black-and-white photographs.
