Inside Out and Back Again is a story of an immigrant, so we will discuss the difficulties immigrants may face as they adjust to new foods, languages, etc. Ha has to deal with mean students at school who have negative ideas about Vietnamese immigrants. They make ethnic jokes and call her names including "pancake face". We will talk about bullying. The backdrop of this story is the Vietnam War, but readers do not hear much about the war and the story is not violent outside of mean schoolchildren.
