Description
When the coronavirus hits Hong Kong, ten-year-old Knox Wei-Evanss mom makes the last-minute decision to move him and his siblings back to California, where they think they will be safe. Suddenly, Knox has two days to prepare for an international moveand for leaving his dad, who has to stay for work. At his new school in California, Knox struggles with being the new kid. His classmates think that because hes from Asia, he must have brought over the virus. At home, Mom just got fired and is panicking over the loss of health insurance, and Dad doesnt even know when hell see them again, since the flights have been cancelled. And everyone struggles with Knoxs blurting-things-out problem. As racism skyrockets during COVID-19, Knox tries to stand up to hate, while finding his place in his new country. Can you belong if youre feared; can you protect if youre new? And how do you keep a family together when youre oceans apart? Sometimes when the world is spinning out of control, the best way to get through it is to embrace our own lovable uniqueness.
