In this beautiful, heartfelt picture book, a Chinese girl moves to the big city, where she longs to find a friend...and ultimately meets someone very much like her. Liling and her family have moved from their rural farm to an overwhelming urban city. Because of Chinese law, Liling can't go to school and spends her days with Mama or Baba at work. At the playground, the other children throw sand at her and tease her old red coat and dirty shoes. But after she shares a smile with a girl in a bright yellow jacket who lives in an apartment beneath hers, Liling has a big idea! She draws a picture and lowers it down to the girl--Qiqi-- who returns it with a drawing of her own. When the new friends meet face-to-face. Liling takes Qiqi's hand, and they walk bravely into the park--together. With luscious watercolor illustrations and lovely poetic text, Rebecca Evans portrays an achingly beautiful story about our universal desire for connection, and the comfort we feel when we find a true friend.

Glossary and pronunciation guide. Author’s note. Resources. Full-color watercolor illustrations.
