(From the publisher):
Adopted as a baby, 12-year-old Alice Larsen is of Korean heritage but feels 100% American. Then Yoon Jun, a Korean immigrant, moves to her small Minnesota town, and Alice's parents start pressuring her to make friends with the strange new boy as a way to get in touch with her heritage. Alice resists—what would her friends think? Anyway, she's American. But when she and Yoon Jun are assigned to work together on a school project, she learns about Korea—and about doing the right thing.
