The Lullaby of Polish Girls
A NovelBook - 2013
"Because of her father's role in the Solidarity movement, Anna and her parents immigrate to the United States in the 1980s as political refugees from Poland. They settle in Brooklyn among immigrants of every stripe, yet Anna never quite feels that she belongs. But then, the summer she turns twelve, she is sent back to Poland to visit her grandmother, and suddenly she experiences the shock of recognition. In her family's hometown of Kielce, Anna develops intense friendships with two local girls--brash and beautiful Justyna and desperately awkward Kamila--and their bond is renewed every summer when Anna returns"--Dust jacket flap.
