Ruby Lu, Brave and True by Lenore Look

For Ruby Lu, life on 20th Avenue was mostly great. She was the star of her very own magic show. She gets to give a talk at the local school about the safety benefits of reflective tape. And she also gets to ride the bus down to Chinatown with her GungGung and PohPoh. Still, it’s tough to grow up, and some days can be pretty hard… Like when your baby brother spills all your magic secrets!

While this book might not appeal to older tweens, 9 and 10 year old girls will probably remember all too well how it feels to be (almost) eight years old. Still, anyone can appreciate this fun glimpse into the life of an Asian-American girl — complete with a glossary of Chinese (Cantonese/Taishanese) terms that Ruby and her family uses.

Happy Reading!
