With the help of her family, friends, and the Calivista Motel community, Mia Tang continues to tackle racism and fight for social justice in this powerful and timely sequel. Kelly Yang's Three Keys to friendship -- "You gotta listen, you gotta care, and most importantly, you gotta keep trying." -- also apply when it comes to standing up for what's right. Readers will love how these characters work together to advocate for others and see that small actions can lead to big changes.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
