What was the pandemic of the century like at the start? Capturing the uncertainty, the panic, but also the ways in which people come together, this moving high-stakes novel weaves in the tastes and sounds of an ancient city as it follows 13-year-old Mei who tries to make a difference through her love of Wuhan cuisine. Authentically written by an award-winning author originally from Wuhan.

Grieving the death of her mother and feeling like an outcast in school, thirteen-year-old Mei seeks consolation in cooking and computer games. When an online friend admits that his grandmother is sick, Mei reaches out to her father, a doctor, for help, and discovers an overcrowded hospital. As the virus spreads, Mei finds herself alone in a locked down city trying to find a way to help.

An uplifting and genuine depiction, this novel explores our resilience in the face of great loss, and the ways in which people come together to heal and survive. Weaving in recipes, author Ying Compestine draws on her own experiences growing up in Wuhan.
