?In detailing the experiences of Somali youth in their settlement in the Twin Cities area, Bigelow draws on her work with non-literate young adults and her own community advocacy to suggest a path forward for young immigrants who face daunting challenges in coming to terms with their own sense of identity, as well as their mastery of western academic literacies. Bigelow?s work is an outstanding model of applied linguistics research.? ?Sandra L. McKay, Professor Emeritus, San Francisco State University
