Finding my Hat by John Son
Jin-Han's earliest memory is of losing his hat on a windy day and his mother promising to buy him a new one. From that first story Jin-Han moves through his life describing important events that he remembers. He includes kissing Tina in kindergarten, moving to Memphis and then Houston with his family, working at his family's wig store, making kim-chee in the backyard, and his first slow dance with a girl among many others.
