Cilla Lee-Jenkins: The Epic Story

Written by Susan Tan, Illustrated by Dana Wulfekotte

I like this book because it is fun and new. The story features a girl named Cilla, who grows up in a mixed race family. It doesn’t really tell you what place her mom is from, but her dad is Chinese. Cilla goes through challenges and problems, and this is why I like this book, because it is something that could actually happen. It is very realistic and is a very good book, although sometimes it may be slow. But overall, a really great book.
