Front Desk

By Joshua, Age 12

In the book Front Desk, I felt like I was represented because of the main character, Miya. In the book, Miya was a Chinese girl who wanted to help her parents out. I felt represented by this because I always wanted to help my parents and other people out. She shows how kids can be so determined to help, no matter how old they are. I believe that Kelly Yang intended for kids who wanted to help out, but are rejected because they are rather young, too weak, or because their parents might be overprotective. This represents me because I want to help my parents and friends, but I don’t know how to sometimes, and even if I did, they usually reject my help. That’s why I felt represented when I read this book.
