In this third book about Pacey and her family, we see Pacey and her family flying over to Taiwan for a month over summer break. Pacey's grandmother is turning 60, a very important number as she has lived to see 5 cycles of the Zodiac sign. Pacey's not sure she wants to go. She doesn't speak Chinese or Taiwanese and feels like a "Twinkie" yellow on the outside, white on the inside. I find Pacey's story really relateable. As a child of immigrants who was not spoken to in either Arabic or Portuguese I can relate to Pacey's struggle to find an identity all her own.
