Lucy Wu, aspiring basketball star and interior designer, is on the verge of having the best year of her life. She's ready to rule the school as a sixth grader and take over the bedroom she has always shared with her sister. Her plans are shattered, though, when she finds out that Yi Po, her great aunt, is coming to visit from China for several months-and will be staying in Lucy's room. Lucy's vision of a perfect year begins to crumble, and in its place come an unwelcome roommate, foiled birthday plans, and forced attendance of Chinese school with the awful Talent Chang.

Her year is ruined-or is it? While Lucy may not get the "perfect" year she had in mind, maybe she can create something even better.
