In Chinese, the word for America, “Mei Guo,” translates directly to “beautiful country.” Yet when seven-year-old Qian arrives in New York City in 1994, full of curiosity, she is overwhelmed by crushing fear and scarcity. In China, Qian’s parents were professors; in America, her family is “illegal.” This New York Times Notable Book is “a potent testament to the love, curiosity, grit, and hope of a courageous and resourceful immigrant child” (Kirkus, starred review).

Fredrik Backman (A Man Called Ove and Anxious People) returns with the long-awaited conclusion to his beloved Beartown series, which inspired an HBO series of the same name. The Winners starts with a storm, a death, and two funerals on the same day, a series of events that reignites an old rivalry between two towns and explores questions of what it means to win, what it means to lose, and what it means to forgive.
