All Day


Maizy has never been to Last Chance, Minnesota…until now. Her mom’s plan is to stay for just a couple of weeks, while Maizy’s grandfather gets better. But plans change, and as Maizy spends more time in Last chance (where she and her family are the only Asian Americans) and at the Golden Palace–the restaurant that’s bee in the family for generations–she makes some discoveries. For instance: You can tell a lot about someone by the way they order food. People can surprise you. sometimes in good ways, sometimes in disappointing ways. And the Golden Palace has secrets. but the more Maizy learns, the more questions she has. Like, why are her mom and her grandmother always fighting? And who are the people in the pictures on the office wall? When she discovers that a family treasure has gone missing–and someone has left a racist note–Maizy decides it’s time to find the answers.
