Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Ly Tran

Biography & Memoir • 11.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Ly Tran narrates her memoir describing the struggles she faced growing up in a Vietnamese-American immigrant family in New York City. After a resettlement was made possible by a U.S. government humanitarian program in 1993, Tran and her family moved from South Vietnam to Queens, when she was just a toddler. In chronological order, Tran beautifully pieces together short, personal stories about her family and the poverty and racism she encountered as she tried to find a sense of belonging in a new culture. She shares details of times when she courageously paved her own road and ultimately found her unique voice. With vulnerability and moments of humor, Tran recounts her inspiring journey. D.Z.
