Lexie misses her mom more than anything! Her mom has left her and moved away to exciting San Francisco with her new husband while Lexie is stuck living with her strict grandparents. When she hears about a writing contest that could possibly get her to San Francisco she knows that she has to win! Only one problem…there is another classmate who is just as determined to win at ANY cost! The writing contest centers on a real-life historical event involving a doll exchange between American and Japan school children pre-World War I. Read along as a little doll teaches Lexie more about herself than she ever expected. (Prepared by: Michelle Weaver, Walker Gamble Elementary,, South Carolina Book Awards, 2017)
