But sometimes even an unwanted change can bring a good opportunity.
This lyrical and compelling sequel to the National Book Award Medalist and Newbery Honor winning and #1 New York Times bestselling novel Inside Out and Back Again follows Hà and her family through another year of upheaval, growth, and love.
