Marisa, a seven-year-old Asian American girl who lives in Hawaii, rings in the New Year with her family. Her family, which her grandmother calls “chop suey,” or “all mixed up” in pidgin, consists of people who are Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Hawaiian, and haole (Hawaiian for white people). Dumpling Soup follows a vibrant family and includes the author’s special dumpling soup recipe!
