9780142500279: A Step from Heaven (Now in Speak!)

Young Ju and her parents are going to live in America, where everyone can make lots of money. She thinks they are on their way to heaven. But when her mother and father have to work three jobs just to pay the rent and everyone speaks a new language and has new customs, Young Ju feels caught between two cultures. Her mother tells her she is a strong American girl with a future but her father is angry with her when she is not a respectful Korean daughter. This is a powerful and elegant novel about a girl's journey to adulthood and a family's struggle for a better life, which will resonate with migrants everywhere.
