Title: Clara Lee and the Apple Pie Dream
Author: Jenny Han,Julia Kuo
Korean American fourth-grader Clara Lee longs to be Little Miss Apple Pie and when her luck seems suddenly to change for the better, she overcomes her fear of public speaking and enters the competition.
Clara Lee likes her best friends, her grandpa, kimchi, candy necklaces (her signature look!), and the idea of winning the Little Miss Apple Pie contest.
Clara Lee doesn’t like her mom’s fish soup, bad dreams (but Grandpa says they mean good luck!), speaking in public, or when her little sister is being annoying.
One day, after a bad dream, Clara Lee is thrilled to have a whole day of luck (Like!). But then, bad luck starts to follow (Dislike!). When will Clara Lee’s luck change again? Will it change in time for the Little Miss Apple Pie contest?
