Miss Dianne Recommends: Love, Love by Victoria Chang
Rooted in personal experience, this novel in verse captures the trials of being a Chinese immigrant in suburban Detroit. Frances Chin, age 11, deals with school bullies, tries to solve the mystery of her sister’s strange illness and finds strength at the local tennis court.
An expressive book of poetry that provides a glimpse at life in an immigrant family. A sweet and relevant story exploring what it means to be an American, a sister, and our own self. Enjoy!
