Inside Out and Back Again is a #1 New York Times bestseller, a Newbery Honor Book, and a winner of the National Book Award Inspired by the author's childhood experience as a refugee--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, H 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. H and her family are forced to flee as Saigon falls, and they board a ship headed toward hope. In America, H 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 H 's story.--Bulletin of the Center for Children's BooksBinding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Thanhhà LaiPublisher: HarperCollinsPublished: 02/22/2011ISBN: 9780061962783Pages: 262Weight: 0.79lbsSize: 8.45h x 5.90w x 0.97dAward: Rebecca Caudill Young Readers Book Award - NomineeAward: North Carolina Children's Book Award - NomineeAward: Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Award - NomineeAward: Virginia Readers Choice Award - NomineeAward: Nutmeg Book Award - NomineeAward: South Carolina Childrens, Junior and Young Adult Book Award - NomineeAward: Iowa Children's Choice (ICCA) Award - NomineeAward: Dorothy Canfield Fisher Children's Book Award - NomineeAward: Black-Eyed Susan Award - NomineeAward: Capitol Choices: Noteworthy Books for Children and Teens - RecommendedAward: Jane Addams Children's Book Award - Honor BookAward: Nene Award - NomineeAward: Sasquatch Award - NomineeAward: Sequoyah Book Awards - NomineeAward: Beehive Awards - NomineeAward: Charlie May Simon Children's Book Award - NomineeAward: Newbery Medal - Honor BookAward: National Book Awards - WinnerAward: Rhode Island Children's Book Awards - NomineeReview Citations: Bulletin of Ctr for Child Bks 03/01/2011Horn Book Magazine 03/01/2011 pg. 120School Library Journal 03/01/2011 pg. 164Booklist 01/01/2011 pg. 88Kirkus Reviews 01/15/2011Publishers Weekly 01/31/2011Publishers Weekly Best Books 11/07/2011 pg. 40Booklist Ed Choice Youth 01/01/2012 pg. 13SLJ's Best Books 12/01/2011 pg. 29BookPage 03/01/2011Accelerated Reader Quiz #/Name: 142622 / Inside Out & Back AgainReading Level: 4.8 / Interest Level: Middle Grade / Point Value: 2
