From the cover flaps -
Mai is excited about traveling to Vietnam with her mother. Mom wants to search for her birth family, who disappeared during the war, and Mai wants to help solve the mystery.
Mai has never been to her mother's homeland, and she wonders what being there will reveal about her mother, herself, and the father she never knew. Will learning about her mother's past help her gain a new sense of identity? Is her "real" home in America or Vietnam?
What Mai discovers about her past will change her life forever. Journey Home is a story for all Americans who, like Mai, want to learn more about themselves through their family histories.
