I was delighted with this book. I had only imagined, on a surface level, how difficult it must be for children who immigrate here and face a new language and culture with no friends. This book clearly makes us cognizant of the challenge when everything seems weird, fuzzy, and frightening! How wonderful for young people to be entertained by reading, and at the same time learn lessons in tolerance. Besides, they see a model of true friendship. Priscilla, the best friend of Gina Zhang, tirelessly supports Gina's struggle. We all should be so lucky as to find a friend like that!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
