Written by Susan Tan
Illustrated by Dana Wulfekotte
Published by Square Fish
Pricilla “Cilla” Lee-Jenkins has already written a “Bestseller” and a “Classic”–now it’s time for her to write an Epic Story. Epics are all about brave heroes overcoming Struggles to save the world, and this year, Cilla is facing her toughest struggles yet:
– Cilla is in fifth grade and, unlike her classmates, not at all ready to start middle school
– She has two younger sisters to look after now and they don’t exactly get along
– Her beloved grandfather YeYe has had a stroke and forgotten his English, and it’s up to Cilla to help him find his words again
With humor, heart, and her mighty pen Cilla Lee-Jenkins will use her powers to vanquish every foe (the mean girls in her class), help every citizen (especially Ye Ye), and save the world.
