Something About America

author: Maria Testa

The thirteen-year-old from Kosova thinks of herself as a typical American schoolgirl. But for her parents, moving to Maine was just a sad necessity, a way to escape from war and find medical care for a daughter scarred up to her chin. But then a hateful event changes everything — forcing residents old and new to reexamine what it means to be an American.

"Maria Testa uses. . . . verse to tell a poignant story about a child touched by war. . . . An excellent choice for classroom discussion." — Booklist
