Touches on all kinds of tough subjects in a thoughtful, appropriate way: embarrassment that her her mother is a housecleaner; having to attend Saturday School to learn Chinese and not doing very well at it; having her best friend suddenly come to stay when the friend's father breaches his restraining order following a custody battle.
This list makes it sound like a troubled story, but it is really very nice, and I recommend it. Lots of mentions of good books to read.

Summary

In Chinese, peng you means friend. But in any language, all Anna knows for certain is that friendship is complicated. When Anna needs company, she turns to her books. Whether traveling through A Wrinkle in Time, or peering over My Side of the Mountain, books provide what real life cannot—constant companionship and insight into her changing world. Books, however, can’t tell Anna how to find a true friend. She’ll have to discover that on her own.
