Newly arrived from Kazakhstan, Maya Alazova
resents her little brother and the way her mother
babies him. When the school moves her from the English Language Learner program to mainstream classes,the world of this pretty seventh grader turns upside down. Maya meets a boy who opens the floodgates to her heart, but she becomes the target of a jealous bully and the boy’s attention sets off a hurricane at home. But when Maya finds that her little brother can help
with their new culture in ways their parents can’t, she discovers a bond she didn’t know existed.
