Ruby Lost and Found

We rated this book:


Summer’s going to be different for Ruby Chu, and not in a good way. Her sister will be heading off for college, and Ruby and her best friends have drifted apart. So when Ruby is told to spend the summer with her Nai-Nai, she’ll have to find new ways to make her summer fun, like the ones she spent with her Ye-Ye. After losing him a few months ago, nothing feels the same anymore, especially when their favorite Chinatown bakery decides to shut down after years of business. This summer, Ruby will have to find new places, new friends, and most importantly, herself.

One of my favorite parts of the book were the ones with May’s bakery in it. It meant so much to Ruby, and it really made me crave egg tarts and coconut bread. I like Liam’s character and how easygoing he was when Ruby shared her ideas. The cover artwork is stunning and has warm-toned colors. It was a really sweet story that I recommend to people who feel lost at times, as there’s always a place for you.
