The story is narrated by an Asian-American girl whose family runs a Chinese restaurant. She is annoyed at her parents for keeping the store open on July 4th and selling chinese food. She has to deal with how frustrated and discouraged she is by the separation of American culture and her own culture. This is a good book for Asian-American students who are dealing with cross cultural issues or students who want to know more about chinese tradition.
