Brigid Mai Khanh Leahy narrates the sequel to the author's award-winning work, OUTSIDE AND BACK AGAIN. This story begins two years after Ha and her family's arrival in Alabama after fleeing the Vietnam War. Leahy accounts for the line breaks of this novel-in-verse, producing a lyrical narration. She also depicts Ha's poignant emotions, her youthful voice aiding listeners in entering the protagonist's perspective. Now that Ha is finally adjusting to her new home in the U.S. and is finding friendship, she is stunned by her mother's decision to move from Alabama to Texas. Leahy delivers additional surprises, such as the arrival of Ha's period and the news of the Mai Lai massacre. Throughout, Leahy shows the resilience and adaptability of Ha and her family as they search for a home. S.W. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2023]
