Remember when people used to write letters? This book is written in letters between two penpals, a daughter of Indian immigrants in New York City and a Kentucky coal miner's son. It is a beautiful, moving, and authentic cross-cultural dialogue, powerful in talking about race, class, injustice, and the places we call home. Recommended for kids and adults, particularly people who are curious how different people's lives can be living in the same country, under the same sun.
