Phone calls are too expensive. Letters are the only way to keep in touch with the life she left an ocean away. Rosalie was sad about leaving so much behind, but mostly she was worried that she was leaving herself behind. "Coming to America," begins on board the Queen Elizabeth where rough seas make going upstairs feel like going downstairs! Join 13-year-old Rosalie as she crosses an ocean and struggles to find her way in a new world. This book is on the Mamie Eisenhower library Project List, and will inspire readers of all ages to discover the stories about how their family members came to America.
