"Lin does a remarkable job capturing the soul and spirit of books like those of Hayward or Maud Hart Lovelace, reimagining them through the lens of her own story, and transforming their special qualities into something new for today's young readers." (Booklist)
"Lin creates an endearing protagonist, realistically dealing with universal emotions and situations. Girls everywhere, but especially those in the Asian-American community, will find much to embrace here." (Publishers Weekly)
"Entertaining and often illuminating." (The Horn Book)

We loved your book!!! And we also loved your “the ugly vegetables”book!!!👍🏻❤️❤️❤️❤️💮💮🈵🈴㊗️㊙️🉐🈹🈲🈸🈚️🈶🉑best book ever!!!!!
Funny and relatable story of a Taiwanese American girl growing up in upstate New York. It begins and ends with her family celebrating Chinese New Year, following her joys and frustrations at school and home. Great read aloud! My almost five year old loved the Ramona and Fudge series, and was heartbroken when she got to the end of those. She was quite determined that she would not like this book, but five minutes in, she was hooked. She liked this book so much, it was hard to get her to get out of the car for daycare!
Best book I ever listened to.
A very funny book that makes me feel like the characters are the people in my life.
