Húóng lived in Vietnam until the bombs forced her family to flee to a new country. Not only were the sights, sounds, and smells different, but she also took on a new name.  As she adjusted to her new home, the child became comfortable with her two names: Húóng and Jennifer. An author’s note details the actual family story and includes a photograph and glossary.
