I'm looking for books with Third Culture Kid POVs. TCKs are usually defined as those who have grown up or spent a significant part of their upbringing in a culture different from their native/parent culture, who develop their own in-between cultural identity from elements of both. They often end up being strongly attached to two or more places/cultures without quite fitting in entirely with either.

A lot of the writing on the subject that I can find is academic, and a lot of that is annoyingly America-centric (largely about American army or missionary kids) for something that's meant to be all about the multiculturalism. I found this awesome list of books that speak to the TCK experience, but were not necessarily written about that experience. I guess a lot of things could apply, thematically, but I was wondering if anyone knows of works of fiction that are specifically about this.

Thanks!
