While adapting to a new language and customs, Andrew faces an even bigger challenge when his credit card is charged with purchases that aren't his. Andrew learns that his identity has been stolen, but with the help of his friends, he sets things right and begins a new life for himself in America.

Students love to read and discuss these stories! The students are very concerned about identity theft and were surprised by the story's ending.
