Cilla Lee-Jenkins is 50% Chinese, 50% Caucasian, and 100% destined for literary greatness! In this early middle grade novel, she shares stories about a new sibling, being biracial, and her destiny as a future author extraordinaire.
Priscilla "Cilla" Lee-Jenkins is on a tight deadline. Her baby sister is about to be born, and Cilla needs to become a bestselling author before her family forgets all about her. So she writes about what she knows best — herself! And Cilla has a lot to write about: How did she deal with being bald until the age of five? How did she overcome her struggles with reading? How do family traditions with Grandma and Grandpa Jenkins differ from family traditions with her Chinese grandparents, Nai Nai and Ye Ye?
"Heartwarming and poignant! Meeting Cilla felt like making a new best friend." — Grace Lin, bestselling author of Newbery Honor book Where the Mountain Meets the Moon
