The Great Wall of Lucy Wu by Wendy Wan-Long Shang

 
I teach in a diverse neighborhood and I adored this book about sixth grader Lucy Wu who must share her room with her visiting great aunt.  Lucy wants to play basketball and her parents want her to go to Chinese school instead.  The way that Wendy Wan-Long Shang handles the conflicts between generations and cultures is satisfying without being clich√©.

Here is a free printable graphic organizer for students to record an event from multiple points of view.

I recommend this book for 9-12 year olds.
