About this book

Mia Tang is going for her dreams!



After years of hard work, Mia Tang finally gets to go on vacation with her family -- to China! A total dream come true! Mia can't wait to see all her cousins and grandparents again, especially her cousin Shen. As she roams around Beijing, witnessing some of the big changes China's going through, Mia thinks about the changes in her own life, like . . .



1. Lupe's taking classes at the high school! And Mia's own plans to be a big writer are . . . stuck.


2. Something happened with Jason and Mia has no idea what to do about it.


3. New buildings are popping up all around the motel, and small businesses are disappearing.



Can the Calivista survive? Buckle up! Mia is more determined than ever to get through the turbulence, now that she finally has . . . room to dream!
