Dumpling Days by Grace Lin is the story of Pacy and her Taiwanese-American family's vacation in Taiwan.Though she looks forward to visiting her grandparents and extended family, Pacy is also a little nervous. Will people look down on her because she can't speak Chinese? And what will she do without her friends back home for a whole month?
This is a cute and fun story. It chronicles what Pacy sees and does -- and eats! -- during her visit to Taiwan. It made me hungry for dim sum! This book is in the middle of a series, but I've never read any of the other books, and had no trouble following this one.
