Description
Twelve-year-old Tracy-or Tuyet-has always felt different. The villagers
in Vietnam called her con-lai, or "half-breed," because her father was
an American GI. And she doesn't fit in with her adoptive family in
California, either. But when Tracy and a friend discover a soldier's
dogtag hidden among her father's things, it sets her past and her
present on a collision course. Where should her broken heart come to
rest? In a time and place she remembers only in her dreams? Or among the
people she now calls family? Partridge's sensitive portrayal of a girl
and her family grappling with the complicated legacy of war is as timely
today as the events were decades ago.
