Publisher Comments:

"Readers discover the extraordinary within the ordinary, and witness how kindness can draw trust and create confidence in a child." —School Library Journal In Chinese, peng you means "friend." In any language, Anna knows that friendship is complicated.      When Anna needs company, she turns to books, which provide what real life cannot--companionship and insight into her world. Books, however, can't tell Anna how to find a friend. She'll have to discover that on her own. In the tradition of classics such as Lovelace's Betsy-Tacy books and Estes's The Hundred Dresses, this novel explores what it takes to make friends and what it means to be one.

Synopsis:

This fully illustrated chapter book follows Anna, a young Asian-American girl, as she navigates relationships with family, friends, and her fourth-grade classroom, and finds a true best friend.
