Workbook Available Upon Request
Becky is appalled when the Vietnamese "baby" her parents are sponsoring into Canada turns out to be a teenager older than she is. Distressed by her own reaction, she struggles to overcome her feelings of hostility and to understand the shy, silent Kim.
Her new family scared her. They were so loud. And so big, grinning down at her with their white perfect teeth and waving their arms about like noisy pelicans.
Such a huge room. Such big people to live in such rooms. Canada was an alien place. She would never get used to it. But it was a place to stop. It was escape. It was rest. She need run no more.
