“An inspiring portrayal of the determination

to enact positive change.” 


"A gripping and accessible biographical story of a U.S-born Chinese girl caught in a pivotal moment of history, this book spotlights the discriminatory difficulties that visible minorities faced and the heroic actions and perseverance that ordinary people must undertake for equality. Truly inspirational! This is a must-read for all ages, really, because Chinese-American history is American history."

​–Teresa Robeson

Author of Asian Pacific American Librarians Association Award-Winning picture book Queen of Physics: How Wu Chien Shiung Helped Unlock the Secrets of the Atom

"I love that this book communicates, in such a clear and age-appropriate way, the can-do spirit and perseverance of the Tape family!"

–Linda Lum Doler

Great-Granddaughter of Mamie Tape
