This year we will read Front Desk by Kelly Yang. Drawing on her own life experiences, Yang explores main character 10 year old Mia's experiences working the front desk at her family's hotel.
-Heavy themes, including extortion, fraud, and racism, are balanced with the naïve dreams and determination of a 10-year-old...With bittersweet information on Chinese immigration to America added in an author's note, this book captures many important themes...Many readers will recognize themselves or their neighbors in these pages.
--Kirkus Revies, starred review
