The story teaches the str

The story teaches the struggle of a young girl who is caught between cultures. In her heart Oy respects the customs, traditions, and values of her family and culture yet she wants so much to "belong" in her new country. As Kun Mere teaches "To be alone is hard, Oy. But no friend is better than a cruel one" (p. 65). The book is a quick read for transitional readers. The story extends the awareness and understanding of diversity to young children. It is realistic, believable, and convincingly true to real life and is presented to young children in an unobtrusive way. The point of view helps children empathize with others who are different from them.
