THE GREAT WALL OF LUCY WU by Wendy Wan-Long Shang

Lucy is an aspiring basketball star and interior designer, and she is certain that she is on the verge of having the best year of her life.  She is ready to rule the school as a sixth grader, try out for captain of the the sixth-grade basketball team, and take over the bedroom she has always shared with her older sister, Regina.

Lucy's plans are shattered though, when she learns that Yi Po, her grandmother's sister, is coming to visit from China---for a few months!  And she will be staying in Lucy's room!  Lucy's vision of a perfect year rapidly begins to crumble as her parents force her to attend Chinese School with the annoying know-it-all, Talent Chang, and she faces the snobby bully, Sloane Connors, who wants to scare Lucy off the sixth-grade basketball team.  Lucy's year is ruined----or is it?
