The Leavers by Lisa Ko

Book Group 2


Loosely based on a true story of a woman caught up in an immigration nightmare back in 2007, the book provided great discussion on immigration, legal and illegal, in the many different countries we have all lived.  In addition, our feelings about Polly’s motherhood and her on-and-off relationship with her son vacillated between dismay and admiration as she navigated through a difficult life in China and America.  Great discussion.
