Where are you from? When do you use 'we' ? The answers aren't simple for the 18 writers of these personal essays who live and work in the U.S. but aren't sure where they belong. Some are immigrants; most are children or parents of biracial, bicultural families. Whether they feel part of the mainstream or on the edge, many will find themselves in these eloquent memoirs that speak about coming of age and finding a place to call home. -Hazel Rochman
