Graphic novelist Jen Wang’s excellent new children’s book tells the story of an unlikely friendship. Christine plays violin and dutifully attends after-school Chinese class. Moon, also part of the local Taiwanese American community, paints her toenails blue and spends her free time sketching and dancing to her favorite K-pop bands. Their friendship expands their worlds and makes the girls bolder, even as calamity strikes.

This richly detailed story will appeal to a wide range of readers, including those who aren’t normally drawn to graphic novels. Highly recommended for upper elementary school readers.
