Falling into the Dragon’s Mouth

Falling into the Dragon’s Mouth

By Holly Thompson (Henry Holt BYR/Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group)
  • Fiction
  • Set in Japan

Told through the eyes of a middle school American boy who is living in Japan, students have a compelling account of issues ever present in society today and how to deal with them: bullying, feeling isolated, not fitting in, cross-cultural understanding, and how to survive teenage years. It is also a window into Japanese culture and school life, while exploring emotions and issues that all teenagers are constantly facing when “friend groups” dominate and exclusion is visible and difficult, especially when moving across the cultural pathways.
