One comes to appreciate the generous affection of her nurse/companion Lin Nai-Nai, the isolating distance in her mothers grief over losing a second child, the dynamics of a suffering population venting its hostility on foreigners, and most of all, the loneliness of a childs exile from a homeland she has imagined constantly but never seen....A remarkable blend of truth and storytelling. --Booklist, starred reviewAn insightful memorys-eye-view of her childhood...Young Jean is a strong character, and many of her reactions to people and events are timeless and universal.

--School Library Journal, starred reviewTold with an abundance of humor--sometimes wry, sometimes mischievous and irreverent--the story is vibrant with atmosphere, personalities, and a palpable sense of place. --The Horn BookEvery now and then a book comes along that makes me want to send a valentine to its author.

Homesick is such a book....Pungent and delicious. --Katherine Paterson, The Washington Post
