A review by internationalkris
Measuring Up by Lily Lamotte


A fantastic graphic story! When Cici immigrates to America from Taiwan she is focused at first on what she is losing, most importantly her close connection with her grandmother. Some things quickly fall into place for her however like some good friendships. When she sees a poster for a cooking contest she finds way to explore a skill that she always had as well as learn many things about the culture of her new home. The cooking contest brings a fun dose of drama and the dishes and spices are complex enough to entertain budding foodies.
