Abstract:

Struggling with a disapproving grandparent and her inability to fit in with her white peers, a Thai-American high school senior in a small Kansas community secretly designs a clothing line that reflects both cultures.

Kanchana is a Thai-American high school senior in a small Kansas town. She struggles with a disapproving grandparent and her inability to fit in with her white peers. By secretly designing clothing that reflects both cultures, she creates something uniquely her own. When her mother agrees to provide a home for Shelly, a teenage girl, the girl seems to want everything Kanchana has-- even the boy she has a crush on. Just how far will Shelly go to belong?
