    An empowering story of empathy, courage, and hope, based on the author's real-life experience immigrating to the US as a child and working at the front desk of the motel where her parents work.
    Ten year-old Mia Tang moved to the US for a better life, a freer life, but so far, it's a life where she runs the front desk of a motel while her parents clean rooms. And she's not even allowed to use the swimming pool. Based on author Kelly Yang’s real-life experience immigrating to America from China and running a motel with her parents, this novel explores how one little girl overcomes language barriers, discrimination and her own lack of confidence to find her voice – and use it to make a difference. This is a sensitive story of tolerance and diversity that will resonate with readers of all cultures who have experienced the challenges of feeling like an outsider.
    This is the kind of story that inspires empathy and has the power to give readers a new perspective.
    This immigration story, based on the author's life experience, will appeal to first-generation Australians, their classmates, and anyone who has ever felt like an outsider.
    An antidote to all of the hate in the news, this book champions a message of kindness.
