This Is Not My Home

Written by Vivienne Chang
Illustrated by Eugenia Yoh
Published by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers

A humorous and heartfelt reverse immigration story that will resonate across cultures and show us how a place can become home.

When Lily’s mom announces their family must move back to Taiwan to take care of her elderly Ah Ma, Lily is devastated to leave behind her whole life for a place that is most definitely not her home. But Lily soon realizes, through the help of her family and friends, what home means to them. And perhaps someday—maybe not today, but someday—it might become her home too.
