When 12-year-old Cici moves to Seattle from Taiwan, the only thing she wants more than to fit in at her new school is to celebrate her grandmother’s 70th birthday together. She enters a kids’ cooking contest to win the grand prize so she can pay for her grandmother’s plane ticket — but Cici only knows how to cook Taiwanese food! She’s determined to channel her inner Julia Child and find a winning recipe that will reunite her with her grandmother, and find a way to fit in with her new friends! This is a beautiful story about food, family, and finding your place in the world. Participants can access the book on Hoopla for free with their library cards, or check out a copy from the library.
