School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up-This anthology focuses on the American experiences of ethnic teens. The hero of one funny story is a half-Japanese, half-Polish rapper; another features a budding Vietnamese pitcher with the unfortunate name Ngo Huynh Phuong (No Win Fong). These selections cover the full range of teenage concerns, from finding friends to doing well on the SATs to troubles with romance and parents. Gallo solicited stories by foreign-born authors, and much of their work has an autobiographical ring and conveys real feelings. Other pieces were written by authors whose previous novels have treated ethnic minorities sensitively, most notably Linda Crew's story of a Cambodian girl's struggle with the idea of an arranged marriage. Several of the entries, while affecting, are awkwardly written or didactic, but overall the quality is very good.-Kathy Fritts, Jesuit High School, Portland, OR
