While facing racist vandalism at her middle school, Junie learns of her grandparents? experiences as lost children during the Korean War and finds her inner strength. Junie Kim just wants to fit in. So she keeps her head down and tries not to draw attention to herself. But when racist graffiti appears at her middle school, Junie must decide between staying silent or speaking out.
