Summary

Summary

Fresh Off the Boat meets Junie B. Jones in this first novel in an adorable new chapter book series about Mindy Kim, a young Asian American girl who is starting a snack business!

Mindy Kim just wants three things:

1. A puppy

2. To fit in at her new school

3. For her dad to be happy again

But, getting all three of the things on her list is a lot trickier than she thought it would be. On her first day of school, Mindy’s school snack of dried seaweed isn’t exactly popular at the lunch table. Luckily, her new friend, Sally, makes the snacks seem totally delicious to Mindy’s new classmates, so they decide to start the Yummy Seaweed Business to try and raise money for that puppy!

When another student decides to try and sabotage their business, Mindy loses more than she bargained for—and wonders if she’ll ever fit in. Will Mindy be able to overcome her uncertainty and find the courage to be herself?

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The discussion of Mindy’s experiences as a young Asian American student, including bringing ‘different’ food to lunch and how she looks different from her classmates, is a welcome and necessary perspective.” School Library Journal
“Lee ambitiously takes on a number of issues with a new school…Mindy’s accessible, genuine-sounding voice is sincere without diminishing the gravity of heavy issues. Lee also knows when to insert scenes of family love that prevent Mindy’s dad from being defined solely by his grief…A lovingly authentic debut that shine.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
