The Year of the Rat

by Grace Lin
£5.99   paperback  Little, Brown Book Group (2009)

The Year of the Rat by Grace Lin The Year of the Rat means big changes, but is Pacy ready for them?
 
In this sequel to The Year of the Dog, Pacy has another big year in store for her. The Year of the Dog was a very lucky year: she met her best friend, Melody, and discovered her true talents.
 
However, the Year of the Ray brings big changes: Pacy must deal with the possibility of Melody moving away, find the courage to forge on with her dream of becoming a writer and illustrator, and learn to face some of her own flaws in the process.
 
Along the way, Pacy encounters prejudice, struggles with acceptance, and finds the beauty in change.
 
Praise for The Year of the Rat:

"Readers of this gentle, appealing sequel will appreciate the way the engaging protagonist discovers she can survive the change the new year brings."
(Kirkus)
"An endearing story that will touch readers."
