|aThis summer, Pacy's family is going to Taiwan for an entire month. Taiwan? Pacy isn't even sure she knows where that is. And when she gets there, Pacy looks like everyone else but can't speak the language, her art talent seems to have disappeared, and she has only her sister to spend time with! But there's plenty of adventure in Taiwan, too. As the month passes by, Pacy eats chicken feet (by accident!), gets blessed by a fortune-teller, learns more about her heritage, and grows closer to those who matter most.
