I have no idea who that is, but I'd bet many Americans can relate to it! Looking forward to seeing the answer.

Congratulations jama. You sure answered quickly on that one. This author is new to me.

I haven't read any of her books in awhile, but she was one of the first Asian American writers I read when I first started writing for children. There were so few then, more now . . .
