Project Mulberry by Linda Sue Park [in AsianWeek]

Project MulberryNewbery Medalist Linda Sue Park (2002 for A Single Shard) departs from her established historical novels and treks into contemporary middle school America to tell the story of two friends, Julia and Patrick, who raise silk worms as part of an after-school program. Park adds an interesting story within a story, in which she “talks” to her main character about what’s going on in each chapter. It’s a bit disruptive at first, but Park ingeniously brings to life a whole other dimension to her feisty protagonist.
