Uplifting story for middle readers about pursuing your dreams and accepting others. ( )

Cute and charming while dealing with serious issues. Bonus points for being semi-autobiographical.

Note: I picked this up because some parent somewhere (in 'Murica natch) was terribly aggrieved that thier precious child had been exposed to all the sordid evil this book contains by an educator and that sort of thing always piques my curiosity. ( )

In a hotel lives Mia Tang and her parents who are immigrants. The empty hotel rooms are where the Tang family is secretly hiding other immigrants and trying to hide it from the owner. Mia works at the front desk as her parents clean the rooms, but Mia wants to be writer as her dream job. There is a sense of adventure of the obstacle she goes through meanwhile trying to obtain her job. This book introduces immigration and issues that arise with it. It can be important also to discuss with students that through all challenges they should continue to go for what the dream to be one day. ( )

Welcome to the world of an amazing 10 year old, Mia Tang, an immigrant from China with her parents. After 2 years living in various places in the U.S., her family has recently moved and are living in and managing the southern California motel of a really evil owner, Mr. Yao.

Mia's experiences as an immigrant, her friendships, bullying and racism are on full display. Mia's kindness, resourcefulness and determination shine through again and again as she must make it over the various hurdles placed in her way. ( )

Mia Tang and her parents get a job overseeing a motel for the ornery (and cheap!) owner, Mr. Yao. There are "weeklies" who stay and pay by the week as well as rotating visitors. Her parents work hard for not a lot of pay, but they don't have a lot of other options. Mia helps out by working the front desk when she's not at school, and dreams of better days to come.

It took me awhile to get into this episodic story of Mia's family and her adventures running the motel. I thought she was precocious for ten and didn't quite believe that a ten-year-old would be at the front desk until I peeked ahead at the author's note and realized a lot of that came from her own experiences. Mia's friend Lupe and Mr. Yao's son Jason, as well as the weeklies, are excellently drawn secondary characters. Before I knew it, I really cared about what happened to the Tangs and loved seeing how everyone came together in the end. ( )
