Oy and her family just moved from Thailand and Oy isn't enjoying it. Her classmates tease her for being a different culture. Until Liliandra, the popular girl, finds a picture of Oy in her special Thai dress. Liliandra's friends think she looks like a princess! Liliandra will let Oy into her club if she lets her try on the Thai dress. Oy is torn, but she wants to belong so much...
