Cilla Lee-Jenkins: This Book Is a Classic: 08/05/19
Cilla Lee-Jenkins: This Book Is a Classic by Susan Tan is the second book in the series. Cilla is now a big sister. She's also finished her memoir and now wants to write a classic. While she's learning how to be a big sister, she is also trying to better embrace her Chinese heritage.
Volume 2 is set against Chinese New Year. Cilla gets both sides of her family — her white American grandparents and her Chinese grandparents to attend the parade.
Then there is the upcoming wedding between Cilla's Aunt Eva and her future uncle. She believes he's Chinese and it takes until near the end to learn that he's more clueless about Chinese traditions than she is because she's actually Korean.
This volume was actually my introduction to Cilla and then I went back to read Cilla Lee Jenkins: Future Author Extraordinaire (2017). The third volume came out in March is titled Cilla Lee Jenkins: The Epic Story (2019).
