When 11-year-old Wen is adopted from China, she struggles to adjust to her new family and preteen life in America, which is very different from the orphanage where she spent so many years. Most of all, Wen misses her best friend, Shu Ling, and wonders whether she’ll be able to keep her promise to find Shu Ling a forever family. Your middle-schooler (and maybe you) will find this one hard to put down.

For ages 8-13.
