Download ☆ Making Friends with Billy Wong 109 Azalea is not happy about being dropped off to look after Grandmother Clark Even if she didn't care that much about meeting the new sixth graders in her Texas hometown those strangers seem much preferable to the ones in Paris Junction Talk about troubled Willis DeLoach or gossipy Melinda Bowman Who needs friends like these. Augusta Scattergood has a knack for nailing the middle grade voice and for really setting the stage in historical fiction I loved her books Glory Be and The Way to Stay in Destiny so I was looking forward to reading her newest work Making Friends with Billy Wong Like Glory Be Making Friends with Billy Wong holds a special place in my heart because like the author I was born and raised in the Mississippi Delta Although this particular novel is set in Arkansas I m sure there was not much difference in what was happening in MississippiAugusta Scattergood has educated me by showing me a side of history that I didn t realize when I was coming of age in the late 70s and early 80s that the Chinese people in my community had suffered racism just like all the other marginalized groups This is an important book for young readers so I hope it gets the widespread distribution that it deserves
