Pacy is back! The beloved heroine of The Year of the Dog and The Year of the Rat
has returned in a brand new story. This summer, Pacy's family is going
to Taiwan for an entire month to visit family and prepare for their
grandmother's 60th birthday celebration. Pacy's parents have signed her
up for a Chinese painting class, and at first she's excited. This is a
new way to explore her art talent! But everything about the trip is
harder than she thought it would be--she looks like everyone else but
can't speak the language, she has trouble following the art teacher's
instructions, and it's difficult to make friends in her class. At least
the dumplings are delicious...
the month passes by, Pacy eats chicken feet (by accident!), gets
blessed by a fortune teller, searches for her true identity, and grows
closer to those who matter most.
