This book is about a girl learning to balance her American culture and her Chinese culture. Her mother is from China and her family lives in America. She struggles to connect to both cultures.

I️ really enjoyed this book, I️ thought it would be perfect for children to read if they feel kind of out of place, I️ know I️ wouldve loved it as a child.

Cute children's story. The protagonist reminded me very much of how I was at that age. In this book Anna learns how to be a friend to someone going through a difficult time. The subject matter can get a bit heavy at times, and I would suggest reading the book with your child in order to address questions that may arise. ( )

I thought this would be the most appropriate first read of 2014 and it didn't disappoint. Anna's been feeling out of sorts lately. Her best friend Laura has been hanging around a new group of friends including the popular and overbearing Alison. Anna resigns to hang out with her friend when she can or not at all. She actually prefers to have her head stuck in a book reading greats like My Side of the Mountain and A Wrinkle in Time. What Anna soon discovers is that Laura actually needs her but like the older gentleman (which is what my mother would call him) her mother cleans for, Mr. Shepherd, her friend doesn't ask for help.

This was a really sweet story about friendship. Anna was very relatable because I could see her do what I do - get lost in a book and tune everyone out if she felt uncomfortable (of course I do it when I'm comfortable as well). There's a whole list of books she reads or mentions and she even had a book inspired Halloween costume so this is a great book for booklovers. Anna was also always making things and the book provided nice little images for how she created them like a drawstring lunch bag for example so this book is also good for those who like to be creative.

Anna struggles with identity. She looks Asian yet she isn't able to speak her cultures language. When she has to go to Chinese school she can't comprehend a word and understandably feels distant from what is supposed to be her roots. There were moments when her mother would say something about her in Chinese and she assumed the worse. I come from a Hispanic culture and most of the time I do understand what people are saying but sometimes I don't and even if I do I can't respond. I know how it must have felt for her to feel lost in finding her identity in her culture and with family members.

Anna could come off a bit selfish or distant like when she didn't see how much people need help or how her friend needed her. Sometimes people get trapped hanging out with the wrong friends so you need a real friend to get you out of it. I'm happy that she started looking around and noticing that she needed to be more of a friend and a better person. The Year of the Book was very synonymous with what it means to be a true friend especially when that friend is dealing with personal or family issues.

I think that “The Year of the Book” captures the comfort that books can bring to a lonely life. Though Anna wishes the girls in her fourth grade class were more accepting of her differences, she also wishes they would just leave her alone so she could read the next chapter. Anna is an appealing character whose struggles to accept her family's Chinese culture are believable, as is her reluctance to trust Laura, who's let her down before. Anna's eventual embracing of some of the differences that make her stand out from her classmates is empowering and may inspire readers to recognize the strength that comes from standing up for who you are.
