Publisher's Summary

An instant #1 New York Times bestseller! 

This “timely and compelling” (Kirkus Reviews) middle grade novel about courage, hope, and resilience follows an Asian American boy fighting to keep his family together and stand up to racism during the initial outbreak of the coronavirus.

When the coronavirus hits Hong Kong, ten-year-old Knox Wei-Evans’s mom makes the last-minute decision to move him and his siblings back to California, where they think they will be safe. Suddenly, Knox has two days to prepare for an international move—and for leaving his dad, who has to stay for work.  

At his new school in California, Knox struggles with being the new kid. His classmates think that because he’s from Asia, he must have brought over the virus. At home, Mom just got fired and is panicking over the loss of health insurance, and Dad doesn’t even know when he’ll see them again, since the flights have been cancelled. And everyone struggles with Knox’s blurting-things-out problem.  

As racism skyrockets during COVID-19, Knox tries to stand up to hate, while finding his place in his new country. Can you belong if you’re feared? Can you protect if you’re new? And how do you keep a family together when you’re oceans apart? Sometimes when the world is spinning out of control, the best way to get through it is to embrace our own lovable uniqueness.

Just amazing

Like all Kelli yang books we have relatable carecters. Like how they deal with rasicim which affects us or how the pandemic COVID -19 did. I like how she focuses on real life problems like Asian hate, Pandemics, and just rasicim in general. She talks about Knox and how the pandemic is affecting him and how it is affecting everyone around him. He can't do the things he loved to do before, and starting online school is tough. He has to leave behind his dad and his dog due to the pandemic. I just love the story line and how she describes carecters feelings in all her books, and especially this one. It is such a great heart felt story to listen to just to start your day. I love how we get narrators that really express the authors emotions that they want to portray through a carecter and that is what Justin Chien does. This book has been amazing and I think you should read it to.
