This is a factual story based on a real girl.  Hazel interviewed the real Kalo in her family restaurant in Melbourne, Australia.

Many children move to new countries.

This is an easy reading story of  the challenges of being 'new'.

Kalo is put to the test when she must leave her home in Hong Kong to go to Australia. A new country. A new school. New food. New customs.
