Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In this sequel to 2018's beloved Front Desk, things are looking up for Mia as she enters sixth grade. Her family of first-generation Chinese immigrants now owns the booming Calivista Motel, which she and her best friend, Mexican immigrant Lupe, help run, but life is soured by the rise of a political campaign fueled by racism and xenophobia. This historical novel is set during California's 1994 gubernatorial race and the vote on Proposition 187, which threatened to prohibit undocumented immigrants from public education and other services. It's no accident that Yang focuses on events that reflects the attitudes reigning in today's politics. In an increasingly hostile community, at school and abroad, Mia and her friends encounter a rising tide of microaggressions and hate crimes--all based on true events, according to the stirring afterword--and after Lupe's undocumented father is jailed under threat of deportation, they must find a way to sway public opinion and keep her family from being separated. Yang carries on prominent themes of the first book, arguably to greater effect here. She has a remarkable talent for relating serious--even traumatic--issues in a way that won't trigger readers, grounding the well-paced story in the struggles, doubts, and deep love between Mia's friends and family. A more-than-worthy sequel, full of hope and heart, even in the darkest of times.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Yang made a joyful splash in the world of middle-grade with her Asian/Pacific American Award--winning Front Desk, and fans will be eager for this timely sequel."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Aspiring writer Mia Tang, 11, returns in this complex yet accessible middle grade novel, the sequel to Yang's Front Desk. Newly named co-owners of the Calivista Motel in Anaheim, Calif., the Tangs are "on the good rollercoaster now," having escaped the authoritarian rule of former owner Mr. Yao. But their financial security is not guaranteed, and burgeoning racist sentiments and hate crimes--involving the impending 1994 gubernatorial election and one candidate's bill proposing to "kick undocumented children out of California schools"--only make matters worse. As Mia and her family and friends face numerous instances of discrimination, they must concurrently inhabit the liminal spaces of being immigrants of color in America, interrogating exactly what it means to believe in justice, fight for their dreams, and belong in a country that seems to resent them. Yang expertly presents resonant themes--including privilege, assimilation, and solidarity--in nuanced ways, providing an entrée into contemporary issues for even the most uninformed young readers. Engaging with a political climate that is similar to current times, Mia is the compassionate, action-driven heroine today's readers deserve. An author's note reveals Yang's personal inspiration and extensive research. Ages 8--12. Agent: Tina Dubois, ICM Partners. (Sept.)"
