When a girl is adopted from a Chinese orphanage, everything she knew about family, best friends, and sisterhood must change.

Wen has spent the first eleven years of her life at an orphanage in rural China, and the only person she would call family is her best friend, Shu Ling. When Wen is adopted by an American couple, she struggles to adjust to every part of her new life: having access to all the food and clothes she could want, going to school, being someone's daughter. But the hardest part of all is knowing that Shu Ling remains back at the orphanage, alone. Wen knows that her best friend deserves a family and a future, too. But finding a home for Shu Ling isn't easy, and time is running out . . .

Such a great book. I love the part in the middle where it leaves you wondering if Shu Ling gets adopted, but then don't stop there, you still have the end to read! I just love the author of this book, Carol Antoinette Peacock. She is a spectacular author so read more of her fabulous books! Read the book to see if Wen finds Shu Ling a family.
