A wonderful story (based on the author's own experiences growing up) about Mia Tang, who has immigrated to the US from China in the 1990s and now helps her parents manage a run-down motel in Anaheim, California. This story doesn't shy away from the realities of racism and poverty that many immigrants face, but it also has a really great cast of characters and together they build their own community. I am definitely looking forward to reading Mia's further adventures! ( )

I absolutely loved this book! I don't know why it took me so long to read it. It has all the feels, both positive and those that make the reader feel empathy/guilt/fear. A semi-autobiographical MG book that tells of Kelly Yang's experience of running motels, helping her immigrant parents and believing in those around her. She touches on all topics: Frienship/racism/class/family, etc. She also reminds the reader to NEVER GIVE UP on your dreams. Cannot wait to add this to my MS library collection! ( )

Heartwarming story with an endearing main character. Social commentary is interwoven seamlessly and the characters are realistic. I will definitely be picking up the next book in this series. ( )

This is a semi-autobiographical novel about a little Chinese-American girl who is given way too much responsibility at a young age working the front desk in a motel her parents manage. It covers racism and poverty and ends up being quite a lovely little story that I'm glad Kelly Yang managed to live through. ( )
