Morning Sun in Wuhan

We rated this book:


There’s a mysterious new virus out there and dozens of cases have spread to the people of Wuhan. Thirteen-year-old Mei’s father has to work nonstop at a hospital that is busier than ever, causing Mei to stay home alone in her locked-up town. With the help of her friends, Mei starts to bring her home-cooked food to others who are too ill to make the food themselves. Can Mei’s community eventually reunite despite all that has happened?

I love this book! The drama in the story is so realistic. I love Mei’s character and the way she describes the food in the book is so tempting! I did not expect illustrations in the book. There were only a couple, but I thought they were a really nice addition. I also liked the book having a recipe after every few chapters. Overall, it’s a really good book, full of drama and food. I highly recommend it for people who have had a similar experience or who are into Asian food.
