I hate borsch!

Nayberg, Yevgenia2022
Books
All Ukranians are supposed to love borsch - but what if you hate the red stuff? A young girl despises Eastern Europe's most beloved soup, and not even the grandmothers of Kiev can persuade her to change her mind. But when she immigrates to the United States, American food leaves her feeling empty. Maybe that disgusting beet soup deserves another chance...Imaginatively illustrated with splashes of borsch-bright red, this book captures the complicated experience of rejecting and embracing one's culture. Witty and poignant, I Hate Borsch! will encourage readers to ponder how history, heritage and food can shape our identities.
