Pacy's family is going to Taiwan for an entire month to visit family and prepare for their grandmother's 60th birthday celebration. Pacy's parents have signed her up for a Chinese painting class, and at first she's excited. But everything about the trip is harder than she thought it would be—she can't speak the language, she has trouble following the art teacher's instructions and it's difficult to make friends in her class.
