Minn and Jake's Almost Terrible Summer

Janet S. Wong

pictures by Genevieve Cote

from the book...

There are a few things / about your best friend
that you can only learn / when you see where he’s from.

Minn knew / that Jake was from the city.
But she didn’t know / that his grandmother was Korean.
That he liked taking bubble baths. / That his brother, Soup,
might be an eating champion. / That Jake was a cheater,
and that he had a . . . / girlfriend?!

There are some things / about your best friend
that it’s better not / to know.

Bouncing free verse and playful black-and-white illustrations combine to make this a charming follow-up to Minn and Jake.
