Waterstones Says

Based on Yang's own childhood experiences, Front Desk is an irresistibly charming novel from the author of Parachutes that spotlights issues key to the immigrant experience through the engaging story of Mia and her motel-based family.

Shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize Younger Readers Prize 2022

Mia Tang has a lot of secrets:

1. She lives in a motel, not a big house.
2. Her parents hide immigrants.
3. She wants to be a writer.

It will take all of Mia's courage, kindness, and hard work to get through this year. Will she be able to hold on to her job, help the immigrants and guests, and go for her dreams?

Perfect for fans of Boy At the Back of the Class and A Kind of Spark.
