Staff Reviews

Lina Gao has been raised by her grandparents for the past five years after her parents left China for LA and took only her sister. Feeling a sense of loneliness, Lina asks to join her family in LA. It is only when she arrives that she realizes the life they talked about did not truly exist. As she tries to understand how her family has lived during their time apart, Lina must start school again, which makes her nervous as she is still learning English and fears judgment from her peers. While Lina is feeling many emotions, she does her best to keep them to herself, making it harder for her to enjoy being back with her family. Follow Lina on her journey as she learns to navigate the change alongside her friends and family.

“Growing up a Chinese-American girl in a mostly white neighborhood, I identified so much with Lina’s struggles to see herself in literature. Finally Seen inspires children who have never seen themselves as heroes in books to be heroes themselves.”
— Donna Liu, Kepler's Books, Menlo Park, CA
