40. Voss: How I Come to America and Am Hero, Mostly

By: David Ives
Level: YA

Voss has many outrageous adventures as a Slobovian illegal immigrant in America. He finds friends and validates his way of living against all odds. Voss must deal with a crazy uncle who thinks he owns everything in the world and a sick father who went to a hospital and disappeared. Voss also has to deal with Aleena Aleenska, who is adamant that they are fated to be married. Don’t expect perfect English, or Eenglish as Voss would say. As the novel comes to a conclusion there is also an unveiled political statement about illegal aliens. For all that, the author creates some hilarious circumstances that are a delight to see resolved.
