About This Book

Julia, a Korean-American girl, doesn't want to do silkworms as a project for the state fair because she thinks it's "too Korean," but, she decides to go ahead with the project and becomes engrossed in caring for the silkwoms' eggs. However, when she realizes that the silkworms must die in order for their silk to be extracted, the reader realizes the extraordinary growth that Julia has experienced in her time doing the project. In this story, which covers issues such as prejudice, biology and conservatism, there is also an interesting dialogue between the protagonist, Julia, and the author, Linda Sue Park, on the author's ideas and on her writing process.
