A story of belonging and the power of family, from the Hans Christian Andersen award-winning author of bronze and sunflower.
Ah Mei has always been close to her French grandmother, Nainai, and is proud to look like her. But many in their home city of Shanghai are suspicious of their European heritage and looks. Life if not easy when you stand out, and racism takes its toll on the whole family.
One day Ah Mei will inherit her grandmother’s precious dragonfly eyes-the ancient glass beads passed down through the generations. But has she also inherited Nainai’s resilience and inner strength?
