The Other Shore is a delicate meditation on the nature of ghosts, belief, and how the future is shaped by the past. When the dead begin speaking to sixteen-year-old Kim Nguyen, her peaceful childhood is over.

Suddenly everyone wants to exploit her new talent - her family, the Vietnamese government, and even the spirits themselves.

Written with great poise and confidence in the innocent, delicate voice of a teenager burdened and bewildered by a double-edged gift.
