Featured Book of the Week:
Front Desk by Kelly Yang
Front Desk tells the story of a girl named Mia whose immigrant parents help run a motel. Even though she’s only 10 years old, Mia begins to work the Front Desk of the motel. When Mia’s parents start allowing other immigrants to hide in the motel for free, will the mean owner, Mr. Yao, find out? And if so, what will happen to Mia and her parents?
