"Anyone who spends time with Cilla Lee-Jenkins will look forward to reading her in the future." -Booklist, starred review, on Cilla Lee-Jenkins: Future Author Extraordinaire

Priscilla "Cilla" Lee-Jenkins has just finished her (future) bestselling memoir, and now she's ready to write a Classic. This one promises to have everything: Romance, Adventure, and plenty of Drama--like Cilla's struggles to "be more Chinese," be the perfect flower girl at Aunt Eva's wedding, and learn how to share her best friend.

In Cilla Lee-Jenkins: This Book Is a Classic, author Susan Tan seamlessly weaves experiences as a Chinese American with universal stories about being a big sister, making friends, and overcoming fears. Cilla Lee-Jenkins will bulldoze her way into your heart in this winning middle grade novel about family, friendship, and finding your voice.
