* 'Many readers will recognize themselves or their neighbors in these pages.' --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Mia Tang has a lot of secrets.

Number 1: She lives in a motel, not a big house. Every day, while her immigrant parents clean the rooms, ten-year-old Mia manages the front desk of the Calivista Motel and tends to its guests.

Number 2: Her parents hide immigrants. And if the mean motel owner, Mr. Yao, finds out they've been letting them stay in the empty rooms for free, the Tangs will be doomed.

Number 3: She wants to be a writer. But how can she when her mom thinks she should stick to math because English is not her first language?

It will take all of Mia's courage, kindness, and hard work to get through this year. Will she be able to hold on to her job, help the immigrants and guests, escape Mr. Yao, and go for her dreams?

    The narrator does an amazing job bringing this book to life. This book is a beautiful story that readers from all backgrounds can relate. The story takes you on a roller coaster of emotions as the young lead character navigates life in America and triumphs over many obstacles. Readers will be begging to continue reading!
