THE YEAR OF THE RAT Pacy Lin, Book 2

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Kim Mai Guest, Grace Lin

Children Ages 8+ • 3.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Kim Mai Guest narrates this stand-alone sequel. The story is about Pacy's life in New Hartford, New York, and the many changes she experiences throughout a calendar year. Pacy faces her best friend's move to California, her fear of losing a library book, her concern over her future as an author and illustrator, and her understanding of where, as a Chinese American, she fits among her peers. The semi-autobiographical middle-grade novel contains a sequence of charming scenes depicting the funny, serious, thoughtful, and relatable moments of childhood. Guest performs in a sweet voice that one could mistake for that of an actual child. She flawlessly eases into Chinese and Taiwanese words, as well as contrasting the parents' accents with the speech of their American-born children. S.S.
