Fresh Off the Boat meets Junie B. Jones in this adorable chapter book series following Mindy Kim, a young Asian American girl—in this tenth novel, Mindy honors the fall harvest with the Korean mid-autumn holiday Chuseok.
After Mindy’s beloved haraboji (grandpa) passes away, Mindy, Dad, and Julie decide to go to Korea to be with family for the annual Chuseok celebration. The traditional mid-autumn festival is all about family and honoring one’s ancestors. And while everyone has gathered for a very sad reason, Mindy is determined to make her first official Chuseok one to remember.
