Honeysuckle House by Andrea Cheng [in AsianWeek]

Honeysuckle HouseTold in the alternating voices of two Chinese American girls – American-born Sarah and recently arrived Ting – Cheng captures the story of an unlikely friendship. While Sarah and Ting, both fourth graders, may seem to share some physical characteristics, they couldn’t be less alike … or could they actually have something in common? While Sarah is devastated over her best friend’s sudden move, Ting mourns the life she left behind with her extended family in Shanghai. Together they forge new bonds, discovering unlikely similarities about each other along the way.
