New country. New language. New school.

Being the new kid in school is scary enough, but imagine if what it would be like if you were the new kid in a new school, in a new country. That's exactly the situation Mei Yu finds herself in when her family moves from China to Canada. With the help of her faithful sidekick Meiow, Mei learns to navigate her new world, struggling to find her place when everything feels lost.

Based on author Mei Yu's own real-life struggles and triumphs, this charming graphic novel can help inspire readers to learn to be their very best and overcome challenges in their own unique ways.
