Recent immigrants from China and desperate for work and money, ten-year-old Mia Tang's parents take a job managing a rundown motel in Southern California, even though the owner, Mr. Yao is a nasty skinflint who exploits them; while her mother (who was an engineer in China) does the cleaning, Mia works the front desk and tries to cope with demanding customers and other recent immigrants--not to mention being only one of two Chinese in her fifth grade class, the other being Mr. Yao's son, Jason.

See below for English description. Mia Tang a beaucoup de secrets. Le premier, c'est qu'au lieu d'habiter une grande maison, elle vit dans un motel. Tous les jours, pendant que ses parents immigrants font le ménage des chambres, Mia s'occupe de l'accueil du motel Calivista et reçoit les clients. Le deuxième, c'est que ses parents cachent des immigrants. Et si l'horrible propriétaire du motel, M. Yao, découvre que des immigrants occupent gratuitement les chambres libres de son établissement, la famille Tang sera perdue. Et le dernier, c'est que Mia veut devenir écrivaine. Mais sa mère voudrait qu'elle continue à faire des maths, car l'anglais n'est pas sa langue maternelle. Mia saura-t-elle faire preuve d'assez de courage et de gentillesse, et travailler suffisamment pour survivre à cette année scolaire? Mia Tang has a lot of secrets. Firstly, she lives in a motel, not a big house. Every day, while her immigrant parents clean the rooms, Mia manages the front desk of the Calivista Motel and tends to its guests. Secondly, her parents hide immigrants. And if the mean motel owner, M. Yao, finds out they've been letting them stay in the empty rooms for free, the Tangs will be doomed. Thirdly, she wants to be a writer. But how can she when her mom thinks she should stick to math because English is not her first language? Will Mia muster up enough courage, kindness, and hard work to get through this year? Original title: Front Desk
