New York : Orchard Books,
IL 5-8, RL 5.3
up in an immigrant family is a mix of old ways and modern ways for Jin-Han
Park. He knows enough Korean to understand common words but not enough
to understand when the adults talk. His life is a mix of kimshi and
Tolkien. He endures racist remarks and tries to fit in. His
family moves from Chicago to Memphis to Dallas trying to find a better
life for the family. They end up owning a wig shop in a black neighborhood.
From that embarrassing time he wet his pants in preschool to the excitement
of his first girlfriend, Jin-Han grows before our eyes. Join Jin-Han
as he goes from toddler to junior high student in Finding My Hat.
