From Pulitzer Prize-winning author Viet Thanh Nguyen and illustrator Minnie Phan comes an unforgettable story of a Vietnamese American girl whose life is transformed by a wildfire.

On their way to take shelter in a high school gym, the family passes firefighters from a prison unit battling the fire.
