Prairie Lotus is Newberry award winning author Linda Sue Park's response to Little House on the Prairie. Park describes Prairie Lotus as “an attempt at a painful reconciliation” with a story she loved but also knew she would never have been allowed a place in because of the prejudice and views toward Native Americans (those that were not white) as "lesser".

While Little House on the Prairie emphasizes the survival of frontier life, Prairie Lotus exposes the overt prejudice and racially motivated microaggressions toward communities of color particularly Asian Americans through the perspective of its protagonist, Hanna.
