Product description


''This book is at once funny, thoughtful, and stunningly engaging. I loved, loved, loved it! Can't wait for my own daughter— - and every reader who is lucky enough to get their hands on it - —to step inside Mai's two, very different, worlds.'' --Jacqueline Woodson, author of the National Book Award-winning Brown Girl Dreaming

''The sights, smells, and tastes of Vietnam's cities and villages come alive on the page, without overwhelming a story filled with a summers-worth of touching and hilarious moments, grand adventure, and lazy afternoons.'' --School Library Journal (starred review)

''As she did in her National Book Award-winning Inside Out & Back Again, Lai offers a memorable heroine and cultural journey—ones that are clever near-opposites of those in that book.'' --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

''Lai does a superb job of creating a memorable setting and populating it with fully developed, complex characters. Gracefully written and enriched by apposite figures of speech, Listen, Slowly is a superb, sometimes humorous, always thought-provoking coming-of-age story.'' --Booklist (starred review)

''Newbery Honor author Lai delivers a funny, realistic tale of family and friendship and culture clashes. A touching tale of preteen angst and translation troubles.'' --Kirkus Reviews
