“A childhood immigration memoir for foodies.”-Kirkus Reviews.  Nguyen’s powerful and candid memoir follows the author’s attempts to be a "real American" after her family’s immigration from Vietnam in 1975. Settling in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Nguyen channels her desire for fitting-in with a passion for her new country’s foods: Pringles, Kit-Kats, Toll House Cookies, Jell-O and Happy Meals.
