Bella is a coming of age story. The book takes us through the life of Bella from her childhood to old age. Bella is born in a gypsy family and becomes the first child in their clan to get educated in a proper school.
Girl in Translation by Jean Kwok is a brilliant coming of age story. As an immigrant myself, I could relate to a lot of the issues Kimberly faced. I didn’t have as hard a time as Kimberly but I have heard my father saying some of the things mentioned in the book.
