About this title


Set in San Francisco's Chinatown during World War II

During World War II, children everywhere worked hard to help the war effort. When they organize a paper drive at Nim's school, Nim is determined to prove that she, a Chinese American, is patriot enough to collect the most papers, though she faces stiff competition from school bully Garland Stephenson and disapproval from her very traditional grandfather In this tender and funny story, Milly Lee and Yangsook Choi give us a true and glowing slice of life in San Francisco's Chinatown as spunky, resourceful Nim shows that she can be true both to her country and to her heritage.
