Ling and Ting: Not Exactly the Same
|Grace Lin drew a rabbit because 2011 was the year of the rabbit.|
Other books I have read by Grace Lin are The Year of the Dog and The Year of the Rat. These books are sort of like an autobiography. The stories talk about two girls, Pacey and Melody. In The Year of the Dog, Pacey finds a new friend named Melody. They are both Chinese living in America. They become really good friends. They figure out their families are different in some ways, but the same in others. In The Year of the Rat, Pacey figures out that Melody is moving. Pacey doesn't like it because Melody is her best friend. In the end, a miracle happens.
I liked all these books. I was excited to meet Grace Lin at the Plum Creek Literary Festival. She even called me on stage, but she didn't know she was one of my favorite authors.
