Year of the Fortune Cookie, by Andrea Cheng

Year of the Fortune CookieSummary: Eleven-year-old Anna heads off to sixth grade, leaving the comfort and familiarity of elementary school behind and entering the larger, more complex world of middle school. Surrounded by classmates who have their roots all in America, Anna begins to feel out of place and wonders where she really belongs.  When Anna takes a trip to China, she not only explores a new country and culture, but finds answers to her questions about whether she is more Chinese or more American.

One thought on “Year of the Fortune Cookie, by Andrea Cheng

  1. This was a sweet book, and I enjoyed it as a fun read about finding your roots. It is the third book in a series, and although I felt fairly certain of what the characters’ relationships were, I occasionally felt as though something was missing. For that reason, I don’t think it will win the Mock Newbery.
