Storyboard Text

  • "I vow to rise first every morning to stare at the dew on the green fruit shaped like a lightbulb. I will be the first to witness its ripening." (9)
  • PART 2
  • PART 1
  • "Mother is sick with waves in her stomach...This is not helping Mother. I wish they would stand still and hush." (67,68)
  • PART 1
  • PART 3
  • "We are told to sip water only when we must so our bodies can stop needing. Mine won't listen. Mother sighs.  I don't blame her, having a daughter who's either dying of thirst or demanding release. Other girls must be made of bamboo, bending whichever way they are told." (73-74)
  • PART 2
  • PART 4
  • "I hold his hand: Come with me. He doesn't resist. Alone at the back of the ship I open Mother's white handkerchief. Inside lies my mouse-bitten doll, her arms wrapped around the limp fuzzy body of his chick... Brother Khoi nods and I smile, but I regret not having my doll as soon as the white bundle sinks into the sea." (85-86)
  • "I wish Brother Khoi wouldn't keep inside how he endures the hours in school, that Mother wouldn't hide her bleeding fingers, that Brother Quang wouldn't be so angry after work. I wish our cowboy could be persuaded to buy a horse, that I could be invisible until I can talk back, that English could be learned without so many rules. I wish Father would appear in my class speaking beautiful English... and hold out his hand for mine. Mostly I wish I were still smart." (158-159)
  • "Mother makes her own in the shape of a log, made of pork, regular rice, and black beans, wrapped in cloth. Not the same, but not bad...The same, forever-young portrait of Father. I have to look away... I pray for Father to find warmth in his new home, Mother to keep smiling more, Brother Quang to enjoy his studies, Vu lee to drive me from and to school, Brother Khoi to hatch an American chick...This year I hope I truly learn to fly-kick, not to kick anyone so much as to fly." (257-260)
