Mei Mei, an immigrant child from Hong Kong, loves New York City's Chinatown, where she feels comfortable. There the sights and sounds are familiar, and everyone speaks Chinese, just like Mei Mei. In school, however, everyone speaks English, and though Mei Mei can learn it, she doesn't want to. "Such a lonely language. Each letter stands alone and makes its own noise." Afraid that she will forget Chinese, and that she will be changed by a language so different, one that even contains words (such as "covered wagon") that don't exist in Chinese, Mei Mei resists — until a caring teacher shows her that she can speak both languages and still be herself.
