Cilla Lee-Jenkins: The Epic Story: 08/12/19

Cilla Lee-Jenkins: The Epic Story

Cilla Lee-Jenkins: The Epic Story by Susan Tan is the conclusion to the series and includes photos from the author's childhood. Cilla is now a big sister two two sisters. She's about to graduate elementary school and move onto middle school.

But then her day to day life plans are complicated when her YeYe suffers a stroke and is hospitalized. Post stroke he has lost the ability to speak English and Cilla's Cantonese isn't up to the task.

Cilla decides it's time to turn to her writing skills and make YeYe the hero of his own epic tale. In it she'll help him on his recovery.

In the first volume, Cilla worked to bring her two sets of grandparents together despite their cultural differences. In this book, we see how her grandfathers have become good friends despite their differences. The maternal grandfather helps YeYe on his recovery as they bond over sports.

Of all the books, this one is my favorite. I would love to revisit Cilla in set of books for older readers. This part of her story is definitely done and she has aged out of the young end of the middle grade readers set.

Five stars
