  • Description or summary of the book: The accolades speak for themselves: 'Fritz draws the readers into scenes from her youth in the turbulent China of the mid-twenties. One comes to appreciate the generous affection of her nurse/companion Lin Nai-Nai, the isolating distance in her mother's grief over losing a second child, the dynamics of a suffering population venting its hostility on foreigners, and most of all, the loneliness of a child's exile from a homeland she has imagined constantly but never seen....A remarkable blend of truth and storytelling.' -Booklist, starred review'An insightful memory's-eye-view of her childhood...Young Jean is a strong character, and many of her reactions to people and events are timeless and universal.' -School Library Journal, starred review'Told with an abundance of humor-sometimes wry, sometimes mischievous and irreverent-the story is vibrant with atmosphere, personalities, and a palpable sense of place.' -The Horn Book'Every now and then a book comes along that makes me want to send a valentine to its author. Homesick is such a book....Pungent and delicious.' -Katherine Paterson, The Washington Post
