Inside Out and Back Again
by Thanhha Lai

Holly Says: Inside Out & Back Again is a novel in verse. This is the moving story of one girl's year of change, dreams, grief, and healing as she journeys from one country to another, one life to the next. I’m usually not a big fan of novels in verse, but this one surprised me. Ha describes her life in details that truly connected me to her and the other characters.

  1. This wonderful book, which won the 2011 National Book Award for Young People's Literature and recently was also listed as a 2012 Newbery Honor Book, is well deserving of its awards.
