My full review can be found in my blog, The Quiet Pond.

There are books that I love -- and there are books, like Pie in the Sky, that stay in my heart forever. I loved this book so so much - prepare for me to YELL about this book.

- A MG novel filled with gorgeous illustrations by Lai herself!
- It follows two Chinese brothers who move to Australia with their mother, and how Jingwen, the older brother, navigates the challenges of moving to a new place.
- This story explores immigration, assimilation, language barriers (and how they affect kids Jingwen vs his little brother's age), and also grief.
- Though this book made me laugh to myself for its sweet and wholesome narrative, there were also parts that HIT ME IN THE FEELS. I tear up just thinking about it.
- I just... I felt this book so deeply. I love it with my whole heart. This is up there as one of my favourite MG books ever.
