    1. Many thanks to Laurie O for reading and reviewing this for PSLA 2012!Avvy Go is a young teen who wants to fit in. She is a Chinese immigrant in a new town, without a lot of money but many responsibilities. She’s embarrassed by her thrift store clothes, her wimpy younger brother, and her job at the family's Chinese restaurant in the mall's food court. Her luck seems to change when she finds a wallet with a picture of a dog and a cash card. Avvy uses the card to help her brother and parents but [...]

    2. The book was very interesting. I had never read a book from the perspective of an Asian teenage girl, so it was interesting to read a book from that perspective. The story line was a little slow and boring, but it was not a terrible book. I do wish that the ending could have been better and not ended so abruptly and without a definite conclusion to the story. It left the readers having to guess what happens with the characters and I am not a huge fan of those endings.

    3. I had to give this book two stars because I rely didn't like the book. As much as I wanted to put it down, I couldn't.
