“The View from Pagoda Hill is incredible and beautifully crafted. The characters, both in Shanghai and America, are wonderfully drawn; they come alive. You have to love Neenah because Michaela MacColl has given her such a personality. It is a lovely book that brought tears to my eyes.” —Patricia Reilly Giff, two-time Newbery Honor- award-winning author
Set in the late 1800s, View from Pagoda Hill is the story of Ning, a Chinese-American girl who struggles to find her place in the world when she is forced to leave her home in Shanghai to go live in the U.S. with a father she barely knows. This middle-grade historical novel is based on the family history of award-winning author Michaela MacColl. It earned a Starred review from School Library Journal.
