A great sequel to Kelly Yang's bestselling FINALLY SEEN! This time Lina Gao's battling social media, bullies, online safety, and the very confusing new world of middle school. Despite what the book has to say about social media culture, we admit we would still love to see Lina go viral. Is that so wrong? A fun, absorbing read for kids and a tremendous resource for teachers and librarians everywhere.

A heart-breaking, heart-lifting story of love, family, perseverance, and the fight against book-banning! Anyone who has entered the American school system as a stranger knows the courage it takes just to get through an ordinary day. Invisibility is usually the easiest defense, but the dream is always to be seen--and accepted--for who you are. In FINALLY SEEN, Kelly Yang captures every detail of Lina Gao's journey from new kid who can barely speak English to a valued *seen* member of the community. Along the way Lina not only learns a lot about herself, but she also learns to see who her mother and father are, who her sister and grandmother are, and who her friends are. The ultimate test comes when Lina decides to fight against a group of parents who want to ban her favorite author. How can she speak up when she feels like she can barely speak? The brilliance of Kelly Yang's writing, of course, is that her young heroes always find a way forward.
