Short Girls Bich by Minh Nguyen

This is a debut novel about the Vietnamese immigrant experience in the Midwestern America. Two sisters, the short girls of the title, are polar opposites; one is somber and studious, one is a party girl/slacker. They both had the same teenage goal, to escape their immigrant home as soon as they graduated high school. The sister's stories are told in alternating chapters. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and learning about how Van and Linny, planned their escapes, how they lived, moved apart, then back to center.
