Summary
In 1952 eleven-year-old Azalea is sent to Paris Junction, Arkansas, to help out her grandmother who has injured her foot, but does not really seem to want her help; Billy Wong is a Chinese-American boy whose uncle owns the local grocery store, in town to attend the "white" school, since the Chinese mission school has closed, but frustrated by the overt prejudice of the local children--and over the summer the two begin to forge a friendship
Summary
Sent to help care for her ailing grandmother in smalltown 1950s Arkansas, Azalea forges precarious ties with a troubled kid and a young gossip before bonding with a Chinese American boy whose immigrant family is a victim of racism
