Dan Thuy is a 13-year-old Vietnamese immigrant girl newly arrived in San Diego, California, with her family. Although the information is dramatic, the photo-essay's text is rambling and repetitive, and most of the pictures are openly posed. This doesn't have the personal immediacy of Brimner's "Migrant Family", above. However, readers will get a sense of what it's like to be caught between two worlds--the richness and the problems--in language, customs, foods, clothes, family, and values. We are caught by the specialness of Dan Thuy's experience (including the years spent in a refugee camp in Thailand) and also by how comfortably American she looks in leggings and an oversize T-shirt. Use this with Ashabranner's "Into a Strange Land: Unaccompanied Refugee Youth in America" , about kids who have come here from Asia without their families. In contrast, Dan Thuy is with her parents, and it's clear their extended family has played a big part in helping them get settled and feel at home.
