Genres: Biography, Autobiography


A cozy, flawlessly composed transitioning diary describing a young lady's excursion from war-torn Vietnam to Ridgewood, Queens, and her battle to get comfortable with herself in the midst of conflicting social assumptions. 

Ly Tran is only a baby in 1993 when she and her family move from a humble community along the Mekong waterway in Vietnam to a two-room railroad condo in Queens. Ly's dad, a previous lieutenant in the South Vietnamese armed force, gone through almost 10 years as a POW, and their resettlement is made conceivable through a philanthropic program run by the US government. 

Not long after they show up, Ly joins her folks and three more established siblings sewing ties and cummerbunds piece-supper on their lounge floor to get by. 

As they explore this new scene, Ly winds up conflicted between two universes. She realizes she should respect her folks' Buddhist confidence and add to the family job, working extended periods of time at home and at last as a manicurist close by her mom at a nail salon in Brownsville, Brooklyn, that her folks dominate. In any case, at school, Ly feels the mounting strain to mix in. 

A developing failure to see the board presents new difficulties, particularly when her dad restricts her from getting glasses, considering her finding of helpless vision an administration intrigue. His alarming temper and suspicion leave a permanent blemish on Ly's ability to be self aware. Who is she outside of all that her family expects of her? 

Told in an extra, suggestive voice that, with glimmers of humor, weaves together her family's movement experience with her own full and brave transitioning, House of Sticks is an ideal and incredible representation of one young lady's battle to deal with her legacy and manufacture her own way.
