Now a seventh-grader, Anna Mei is trying to cope with the added pressure of junior high. Add to the mix an annoying “boy genius” Kai Hao Chen from Beijing, who seems to want to invade Anna Mei’s happy world, and our heroine finds herself wishing the Chen family would just go back to China. Why is she the only one bugged by Kai; can she find any common ground with him? Perfect for ages 8–12.
In the third book of the series, Anna Mei has settled into her new town and she’s found a great group of friends: Danny, Zandra, and Luis. The only hitch is that Danny’s acting weird and she can’t figure out what’s bothering him. But while she pushes to find out what his problem is, Anna Mei does a pretty good job of trying to escape from her own. Anna Mei soon discovers what real life and friendship—are all about. Ages 8–12
