An extraordinary story about living on your own as 

an undocumented immigrant.

Ten-year-old Feng Li Lin is so excited for her family's first

trip to the United States! But after an action-packed two weeks,

she and her siblings learn that they will remain indefinitely in

California while first their father and then their mother returns

to Taiwan.

Suddenly Feng Li and her siblings are thrust into an alien world

where the fear of being discovered by immigration become a daily

reality.

Parachute Kids digs deep into the hardships and psychological

challenges of being left to fend for yourself in an unfamiliar place,

while celebrating the comical moments and the incredible courage

it takes to make a life on your own.

Betty C. Tang is the New York Times bestselling illustrator of

the Jacky Ha-Ha series of graphic novels by James Patterson

and Chris Grabenstein.
