Anna is a Chinese-American girl who often dives into books for comfort and for fun. However her books can’t tell her how to find or make a true friend.
The book has various illustrations, which really made the story more fun to read and which brought it to life.
Anna is lovely character, though at times I wish she would stand up for herself more, not only to her classmates or teachers, but also to her parents. I loved that she was a huge bookworm, walking and reading or just trying to finish things faster so she can read more.
There are various side-characters, and I can say that I liked most of them. However I didn’t like Anna’s mom. I think it was quite rude that she just talked about Anna in a language that Anna didn’t understand, or that her mom didn’t think Anna was doing her best at things.
Other than that, I would really recommend this book, it is a tale of friendship, finding yourself, learning new things and of course about books. 🙂
