What readers say about Lali's Passage :

"This book had a lot of details as to what southeast Asia is really like. Lali was a delightful character! I enjoyed following her story and seeing the world through her eyes. She was refreshingly innocent in her own way! All-in-all, I found this book to be a very good debut novel that anyone interested in Asia would enjoy!"  - Detra Fitch, Huntress Reviews

"I really enjoyed reading the book. The tale of Lali's adventures as she struggles to cope with the complexities of western culture is both hilarious and thought provoking. With a treasure hunt thrown in, Lali's Passage is a book well worth reading." - Marge Robbins, Book Review

Sample Text

Chapter 6  Lali

     Since I was fifteen, I had only been back one time to my home town. My mama san boss in Thailand trusted me enough to let me go visit my family for Songkran holiday time. When the taxi pulled up at the dusty   center of Nyaungshwe town in Burma, no one was there to greet me. I walked home alone with so much emotion in my chest, fearful of whether my mother would judge me too harshly for being a bar girl - something she swore to my father that she would never allow to happen. I was also giddy with anticipation of seeing how people and things had changed in the five years I'd been away. Turning the corner to my street, I came across a group of kids jumping rope while singing 'Two Flowers Given Bring Two Smiles,' a song that became popular when I was a kid. I wondered which ones I knew as babies. They stopped singing and turned their smiley faces to stare with crinkled curiosity but no one called my name.
