Front Desk, the award winning debut middle-grade novel by Kelly Yang tells the story of Mia Tang, who helps her parents manage a motel in Southern California as they pursue their American dream. As they navigate a system hostile to immigrants, they form a community based on trust and love.
Kelly Yang was born in China and immigrated to America with her parents when she was six years old. She went to college at the age of 13 and law school at the age of 17. After law school, she gave up law to pursue her passion of writing and teaching children writing. She is the founder of The Kelly Yang Project, a leading writing and debating program for kids in Asia.
