Frances Chin is an 11-year-old Chinese-American girl who lives in the suburbs of Detroit with her immigrant parents and older sister, Clara. At school Frances contends with bullies and the related loneliness that comes with not quite fitting in. She also feels a different kind of aloneness at home. Her parents are preoccupied with work and worry about Clara, whose hair is inexplicably falling out. While Frances struggles to speak up, she finds strength in her growing tennis skills, and her powerful inner voice is captured through gorgeous imagery and evocative free verse.
