Maizy Chen’s Last Chance by Lisa Yee
For ages 8-12
This warm story about family, love, and kindness shows us why we need empathy, while also making us laugh. Maizy’s many joyous discoveries include writing fortunes that inspire people to do better, playing poker with her Opa and seeing how the rules parallel real life, and her new friendship with Logan. We also learn about her great, great-grandfather’s experience as a Chinese immigrant in the late 1800s. This is a fascinating, all-around amazing read!
