No native English-speaking students attend the International High School, and more than twenty-eight languages fill the halls. The students in this modern-day Babel apply to college, fall in love, and rebel against their families like normal teenagers, but many deal with enormous obstacles - traumas and wars in their countries of origin that haunt them and pressures from their cultures to marry or drop out and go to work.

Humans are given only so much time dont waste it
A slice of life story that has mastered the use of filler. Her over emphasis on details completely overrides an point she is trying to make. Even now its hard to say what her stance is, what policies were successful or why these stories are being told

Wonderful, engaging, compelling
A great book with fascinating stories. I felt completely immersed in the world of this high school and its students and staff.
I thought the narration was pretty good, though there were a few words that were weirdly over-pronounced. Overall, an enjoyable performance.
