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.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Yang, best-selling author of the Front Desk series, returns with a timely, heartwarming story that draws inspiration from her own family's experiences at the beginning of the pandemic. In January 2020, the Wei-Evans family is split apart when the three biracial kids and their Chinese American mom move from Hong Kong to California, where they hope for safety. Their dog stays behind with their white American dad, who cannot leave China due to his job. Readers intimately connect with the 10-year-old middle child, Knox, through whom the story is told, feeling his worries, challenges, and longing to be with his father and dog. He struggles with being the new kid at school and with trying to embrace his own unique mind. Knox and his siblings also face challenges as their mom loses her job and the family health insurance, and they are confronted with anti-Asian hate over COVID-19. While the sheer weight of so many different topics causes some pacing issues, and some of the kids' schemes to reunite with their father are a bit far-fetched, the story truly shines in its depictions of family relationships. Yang again demonstrates her talent for honest, age-relevant storytelling from a child's perspective that both entertains and educates. A compelling story that conveys the importance of showing love and kindness, especially during hard times. Highly recommended for all middle-grade collections. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: If Yang's best-selling and acclaimed Front Desk novels are any indication, this book will be highly coveted."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Drawing deeply from her own family's experiences, Yang (the Front Desk series) pens a tender, resonant narrative following the Wei-Evans, an American family living in Hong Kong when news of Covid-19 arises in January 2020. Middle child Knox, 10, who has a "blurting-things-out problem," doesn't want to leave his best friend--his white father--in Hong Kong as his work-focused Chinese mother, overachieving 12-year-old brother Bowen, and cheery six-year-old sister Lea plan to head to an inherited home in El Tercera, Calif. But soon, the oft-squabbling siblings must adjust to a single-parent household, East Bay schools, financial tension, an ADHD diagnosis for Knox, and mounting anti-Asian racism, including hateful confrontations as well as avoidance of Chinese people and food. Banding together, the siblings launch Operation Dad Come Over: raising money to afford their father's plane ticket, and applying to jobs on his behalf. Narrating from Knox's approachable, first-person-present perspective, Yang adeptly maintains a sense of hope and belief in love, balancing haunting dramatic irony ("That won't happen in America.... They have the most advanced medical system in the world") with moments of levity as the family works to be reunited. Back matter features an author's note. Ages 8--12.
