"A compelling sequel to THE GOLD-THREADED DRESS. . . . Handles a perennial topic with poignancy and grace." -- SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL
Oy lives in America now, but she loves learning traditional Thai dances almost as much as being in the Quail Club -- five friends who meet after school to hatch and care for baby quail. When their teacher announces a talent show, Oy knows how proud her family would be to see her step onstage in her gold-threaded dress from Thailand. But bossy Liliandra vows to kick Oy out of the club if she won't team up for a very different kind of dance. In this finely crafted novel, Carolyn Marsden explores what it takes to be a true friend and still be true to yourself.
