The year of 1947 frames this young Chinese girl's experience of leaving her clan in China and settling in Brooklyn, New York, with her parents. The journey through the eyes of this 10-year-old is made especially poignant by the warm, whimsical reading of Christina Moore. Her light voice is perfectly suited to a young girl's but also can stretch from that of a toddler to that of a Chinese patriarch. Her accents-- Chinese, Spanish, Brooklyn--are as pleasing to the ear as the lyrical language used in the story. This story about growing up, about cultural extremes, about heroes, baseball and the American dream will bring the listener to laughter and tears on every tape.
