Clara Lee and the Apple Pie Dream by Jenny HanThis was so good! Clara Lee lives in Bramley, where one of the biggest events is the Apple Blossom Festival. She wants to try out for Little Miss Apple Pie, but shes nervous about the competition - giving a speech about what makes Bramley special in front of the entire elementary school.
Her classmate questions whether Clara Lee is American as apple pie enough. How long has Claras family lived in Bramley? Can she be 100% American if shes also 100% Korean?
I loved how this novel embraces diversity, with boisterous Clara Lee and the special bond she has with her family, especially her grandfather.

Clara Lee awoke one morning very unsettled. She had dreamed that her grandfather died. After some nudging, he got Clara Lee to tell him about the dream. Then he laughed. In Korean culture, having a dream about someone dying is actually good luck. This is a well-written book with very good illustrations.
Clara Lee and the Apple Pie Dream. The Apple Blossom Festival is coming up, and eight-year-old Clara Lee has been thinking about trying out for Little Miss Apple Pie, but she is afraid of making a speech in front of the whole school. Or will all the unlucky things that begin to happen mean the ruin of everything?
