For this challenge for the Pondathon, we had to talk about a diverse book, even though this one doesn’t come out till September I’m excited about it because I loved the first novel by author Kelly Yang, Front Desk
Three Keys (A Front Desk Novel)
Mia Tang is excited to have the best year ever.
After a whole lot of drama, she and her parents are the proud owners of the Calivista Motel. Mia even gets to run the front desk with her best friend Lupe. Her writing is also finally getting somewhere.
But sixth grade gives her a dose of reality when:
- Mia’s new teacher doesn’t like her writing all that much and her whole class finds out about her living situation.
- The motel is struggling and Mia has to answer to many worried investors.
- And with a new immigration law looming, it threatens everyone and everything in Mia’s life.
But if anyone has the key to getting through this it’s Mia and her friends, Mia may not have the best year ever but she’s still ready to face life’s challenges and come out a winner.
So go ahead and pre-order Three Keys, because anything by Kelly Yang is sure to be a winner!
