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?
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Mindy Kim misses her mom, who died recently, and she wants a dog. She also just moved to a new school and is eager to fit in. But nothing seems to be working out the way she wants: her dad is so sad about her mom that he won't even consider getting a dog, and nobody looks like her at her new school. Even worse, the other kids laugh at her lunch of rice, kimchi, and seaweed snacks. Things start looking up when her new friend Sally convinces other kids to try the seaweed snacks and then suggests Mindy sell them at lunch. Soon she has a good business going, but when a classmate tells a teacher about her new enterprise, her newfound popularity is threatened, she gets in trouble with her dad, and she loses her friend Sally. Can Mindy turn things around? This appealing chapter book starring a girl dealing with a new school is ideal for emerging readers and the first in a planned series.--Esmeralda Majors Copyright 2020 Booklist"
