Mid and upper grade school girls will easily relate to the challenges Ivy faces here - an overshadowing older brother, busy parents, and the need to make a choice between activities and family. Everything is resolved happily in the end, of course. While this is intended to take place in the 1970s, it could just as easily take place today. As historical fiction it would best work in context with the Julie books to which it is intended to be a companion. The section at the end on Chinese Americans is informative and the inclusion of pictures of the author from the 1970s is a particularly nice touch. ( )

Ivy is torn between her Chinese family and her life as an American. She is tired of Chinese food and Chinese school, but she still loves her grandparents. Things get very complicated when she has to choose between her big gymnastics meet and her family reunion. She finally discovers a way to include both and realizes that her grandparents understand her better than she realizes. ( )
