Description

This inspiring book is the follow-up to Yin and Chris Soentpiet’s award-winning COOLIES. It continues the rarely told story about our first Chinese immigrants and their long road to the American dream. The book is a thoughtful and powerful reminder of what can happen when differences are put aside and friendships are allowed to grow.

When Ming arrives in San Francisco after the long ocean journey from China, his older brother Shek wastes no time warning him: “Chinese should not go outside Chinatown.” Years have passed since Ming’s older brothers arrived with the first Chinese railroad workers, but they are still not welcome everywhere. But then Ming meets Patrick, a young Irish boy with a kind heart. Though the boys come from separate worlds, they learn each other’s language and ways. And when Ming’s family’s store is in danger of closing, their new friendship helps save it, and is a crucial first step toward bringing their two communities together.
