Measuring Up-Lily Lamotte

$12.99

Twelve-year-old Cici has just moved from Taiwan to Seattle, and the only thing she wants more than to fit in at her new school is to celebrate her grandmother’s seventieth birthday together. Since she cant go to her grandmother, Cici cooks up a plan to bring grandmother to her by winning the grand prize in a kids cooking contest to pay for the plane ticket! There’s just one problem: Cici only knows how to cook Taiwanese food. And after her pickled cucumber debacle at lunch, she’s determined to channel her inner Julia Child. Can Cici find a winning recipe to reunite with her grandmother, a way to fit in with her new friends, and somehow find herself too?
