A deep dive into the 1982 murder of Vincent Chin, and its impact almost 40 years later. It's an important story, but better than that, it's an incredibly well-written book, with great storytelling pulling together the research and context.

This was a "found on the shelves" title for me that demanded my immediate attention. The words so beautifully illustrate our dependence on the Earth and the interconnectedness of creatures great and small. Soyeon Kim's illustrations, with gorgeous colors and amazing cutouts, really add dimension and make this a book worth treasuring.
