Reviews - What do customers think about Remix: Conversations with Immigrant Teenagers?
Remix captures the heart and soul of refugee teens' lives May 8, 2000
Remix gets to the core of what it is to be an immigrant teen in the US today. Budhos allows the characters to speak their own stories, yet also gives us stunning insight into their lives through her observations of them. It is refreshingly unsentimental, yet permits moments of raw emotion and poignant vulnerability to erupt on the page. It is indeed a window into a world that few mainstream Americans every pause to consider.
