'Beautiful and heartwarming, gentle yet powerful, truly a book to treasure.' Sophie Anderson, author of The House with Chicken LegsEverything so far, if Peijing had to sum it up, was a string of small awkward experiences that she hoped would end soon.
The night of the Mid-Autumn festival, making mooncakes with Ah-Ma, was the last time Peijing remembers her life being the same. Now facing a new home, a new school and a new language, everything is different. But Peijing hopes her new friend Joanna can show her the way.
Soon though, cracks start to appear in Peijing's family. The grown-ups are no longer themselves and Biju needs her to be the dependable big sister. Peijing has no idea how she's supposed to cope with the uncertainties of her own world while shouldering the burden of everyone else.
If her family are the four quarters of the mooncake, where does she even fit in?A big-hearted, magical story about sisterhood and a family finding their way in a new place.
