Read in June, 2010

An amusing, endearing look at life in a traditional Chinese-American family, with parents who try to hold on to their culture while hoping their children can assimilate. The Yangs are musicians, passionate about music, but tonedeaf Yang the Youngest, Yingtao, discovers that his passion is baseball. How will he ever convince his father that his terrible violin playing is not because of a lack of trying? Meanwhile, his friend Matthew longs to play the violin, but his father would rather he played baseball. The two boys wish they could switch places. Funny and sweet. 4th grade and up.
