    “I love this book with my whole heart. Kathy’s memoir is tender and touching, filled with the hopes and disappointments of looking for a place to belong. There is so much heart in these pages! A true gem of a book.”

    —Ann Branson, Beach Books, Seaside, OR

    “Young Kathy doesn’t quite fit in her mom’s home, Thailand, or her dad’s home, Maine, and that’s all she really wants to do — fit in. This is a wonderful story about both looking inside oneself and trying to put yourself in the shoes of others, even those who you think you know the best. And the artwork of blueberry pie and red curry and more will have your mouth watering!”

    —Paul Swydan, The Silver Unicorn Bookstore, Acton, MA
