Clara Lee and the Apple Pie Dream by Jenny Han

IndieBound Description:Clara Lee likes her best friends, her grandpa, kimchi, candy necklaces (her signature look!), and the idea of winning the Little Miss Apple Pie contest.

Clara Lee doesn't like her mom's fish soup, bad dreams (but Grandpa says they mean good luck!), speaking in public, or when her little sister is being annoying.

One day, after a bad dream, Clara Lee is thrilled to have a whole day of luck (Like!). But then, bad luck starts to follow (Dislike!). When will Clara Lee's luck change again? Will it change in time for the Little Miss Apple Pie contest?

My Thoughts: Very cute book! When I first wrote Year of the Dog, I had intended it to be more like this, but it turned out a little older, more personal-- so I am glad this book is out there.
