What would you do if you traveled back in time to the 1990s…and met your mother when she was a teenager? In award-winning author Maurene Goo’s Throwback, that’s exactly the situation in which second-generation Korean American Samantha Kang finds herself. After a present-day fight with her mother, Priscilla, Sam must confront the growing complexity of their relationship when she is unexpectedly transported back in time. As Sam discovers more about Priscilla’s life, experiences a budding romance caught in the past, and tries to make sense of her new surroundings, Goo crafts a fresh new take on a generational immigrant story. Joined by a mother-daughter duo of interviewers from Cinnamongirl, Inc., Goo’s heartfelt exploration of family, identity, and love across the decades is the perfect choice for your next mother-daughter book club! Ages 14+.
