Krista and Jason have been best friends since preschool. It never mattered that he was a boy with reddish-brown hair and she was the "Korean girl" at school. Now in fifth grade, everyone in their class is preparing their Heritage Month projects. Jason has always loved Krista's Korean family, and particularly her mom's cooking, but Krista is conflicted about being her school's "Korean Ambassador". She's also worried about asking her intimidating grandma to teach the class how to make their traditional kim-bap. Combine that with her new friends pulling her away from Jason, and Krista has a lot to deal with this year!

Krista Kim-Bap is a wonderful story, in which a Korean girl named Krista embarks on a rough ride, including confusing friendships, a not so nice grandmother, and a sister who is obsessed with fashion. Not to mention that she seems to despise Krista!

When a school project ends up with Krista asking her grandmother for help, she finds out that her grandmother is not as mean as she seems. Also, Krista learns how to make amazing Korean Kim-Bap!

This story is absolutely amazing, and I encourage all children to read it. I would rate this book 5 stars!
