Jean Fritz's Homesick is a story about her childhood while she was still in China. She wants to be in America, where she belongs; but instead, she finds herself trying to avoid saying “God Save the King” at her school. This book is full of fun and shows you pieces of China as you go along. Jean has many adventures. My favorite part is when Jean suspects the cook of trying to poison her. Jean also has sadness and a fiery temper. This is a good book!
