Children of the River

Sundara immigrated from Cambodia to the US when she was thirteen. She still feels awfully out of place, with her dark hair and skin in a land of white-skinned people with fair hair. Sundara knows she'll never be a true American-until she meets a very special boy named Jonathan. Just by meeting him her life changes forever. They form a bond that cannot be broken. But will Sundara choose her traditional Cambodian ways over a new life as an American? This is a touching story that will move you. recommended for seventh to ninth graders.
