Description

An arresting, poetic journey and a moving reflection on immigration, family, and home, from an acclaimed creative team.

Wishes tells the powerful, honest story about one Vietnamese family's search for a new home on the other side of the world, and the long-lasting and powerful impact that makes on one of the youngest members of the family. Inspired by actual events in the author's life, this is a narrative that is both timely and timeless.

Told through the eyes of a young girl, the story chronicles a family's difficult and powerful journey to pack up what they can carry, and to leave their world behind, traveling to a new and unknown place in a crowded boat.
