Ebook description:

One morning, Deming Guo’s mom, an undocumented Chinese immigrant named Polly, goes to her job on the nail salon and by no means comes residence. No one can discover any hint of her. With his mom gone, eleven-year-old Deming is left with nobody to take care of him. He is finally adopted by two white faculty professors who transfer him from the Bronx to a small city upstate. They rename him Daniel Wilkinson of their efforts to make him over into their model of an “all-American boy.” But distant from all he’s ever identified, Daniel struggles to reconcile his new life along with his mom’s disappearance and the recollections of the household and group he left behind. Set in New York and China, The Leavers is a vivid and transferring examination of borders and belonging. It’s the story of how one boy comes into his personal when every part he’s liked has been taken away–and the way a mom learns to dwell with the errors of her previous. This highly effective debut is the winner of the 2016 PEN Bellwether Prize for fiction, awarded by Barbara Kingsolver for a novel that addresses problems with social justice.
