I read this while serving on a panel to evaluate juvenile novels for an elementary school. This is a wonderful book. A Chinese family struggles to make its way in spite of the prejudice of some of their neighbors. The struggles are carefully presented so as to limit their impact on the reader. Grist for some excellent discussions.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0440412315, Paperback)

Yingmei Yang has changed her name to Mary now that she's learning how to be American. It's hard since her family sticks to their Chinese customs, which can be embarrassing in public. Still, Mary wants to be best friends with popular Holly Hanson. She sees her chance when she adopts one of Holly's kittens. The trouble is that Mary's family can't afford a cat and it could damage their prized musical instruments. To prove her friendship to Holly, Mary must find a way to keep the kitten a secret from her impossible family. It won't be easy!
