Love, Love

Barnes and Noble Indiebound
In this beautiful novel in verse, a Taiwanese-American girl contends with school bullies, tries to solve the mystery of her sister's strange illness, and finds strength and validation at the local tennis court.

Frances Chin, a 10-year old Taiwanese-American girl, lives in the suburbs of Detroit with her immigrant parents and older sister, Clara. At school Frances copes with bullies and the loneliness that comes with not quite fitting in. At home, she feels a different kind of aloneness. Her parents are preoccupied with work and worry about Clara, whose hair is inexplicably falling out. But, with the help of her new friend Annie, Frances is determined to play Nancy Drew and solve the mystery of Clara’s condition. She also faces the everyday challenges and unexpected thrills of being a tween, especially when she receives encouragement from a tennis coach. Although she struggles to speak up, Frances’s powerful inner voice resonates in gorgeous imagery and evocative free verse.

The daughter of Taiwanese immigrants, Victoria Chang was born in Detroit and grew up in West Bloomfield, MI. Her poetry has earned such honors as a PEN Center Literary Award, a California Book Award, and a Pushcart Prize.
