Staff Reviews

Finally Seen is a heartwarming and well represented story of a young girl immigrating from China to live with her family. From there she has to navigate learning English, developing her identity as a big sister, helping her family raise rent money after the pandemic and apply for a green card. All the while, she just wants to feel seen in this new environment. How does she do that? Through a book that is threatened to be challenged by her school system for telling the very story she's living. Don't underestimate it. This story packs a lot into one book and it does it well! Everyone should have it on their shelves.

“Growing up a Chinese-American girl in a mostly white neighborhood, I identified so much with Lina’s struggles to see herself in literature. Finally Seen inspires children who have never seen themselves as heroes in books to be heroes themselves.”
— Donna Liu, Kepler's Books, Menlo Park, CA
