I had SO MUCH FUN reading this with my kids today, one of the funniest stories I've storytelled and reviewed with them.

This book is cute. It's based on "Much Ado About Nothing" by William Shakespeare, and they portrayed it very cutely.
What do you do when all you want is to be considered American, but your older sister wants to hold on tightly to her Chinese heritage? You find her an American boyfriend. A short, fun read.
