an amazing and very true dialogue of what it means to be an immigrant and surviving in america for the first time. this story is heartbreaking but valiant while connecting two totally different families through themes of similarity. mbue truly puts america's freedoms, positives, and negatives into perspective and shows everyone what it means for immigrants and their families to be living here. a great raw read if you're into that.
