Publisher Description

Your mother is Swiss, your father is from the Philippines and you have so far lived in five countries, none of them your passport country. Who are you? Where are you from? Where is home? And what did you eat for breakfast? If you are a friend, this book will guide you. If you are a teacher, it will enlighten you. If you are a parent, it will spell it out for you and if you are an employer, it will convince you. Here they are, the cultural chameleons, the young global nomads, the TCKs - Third Culture Kids - from around the world, telling you their story. They gave us their words and art, so that finally there is a book BY them and not ABOUT them. "A wonderful and timely update to the TCK story as it continues to be lived out by a new generation. It answers the question of 'what is the same' and 'what is different' from the past generations of TCKs." (Ruth Van Reken, author of Third Culture Kids: Growing Up Among Worlds and Letters Never Sent). "A much needed book! This book gives children/adolescents a voice regarding their TCK experience, very touching, very poignant." (Ryan Haynes, High School Counselor, International School Bangkok). "To read this anthology is to reverberate our stories as a growing tribe. We echo one another. These youths' stories are mine, yours, ours." (Myra Dumapias, MSW, CEO of TCKid, Building Cross Cultural Bridges). "This poignant collection may make you laugh, may make you cry and, if you pay close enough attention, will provide you with deep insight into what it feels like to be a third culture kid." (Ellen Mahoney, Founder & CEO, Sea Change Mentoring). "Just as Lennart Nilsson's spectacular photographs of developing embryos revolutionized our view of human life, so too will The Worlds Within shed light on the development of the TCK personality, from toddler to adult, and all from within the fluid of the TCK's own experience. A fascinating read." (Douglas W Ota, author of Safe Passage: What Mobility Does to People and What International Schools Should Do About It).
