Kimchi and calamari. It sounds like a quirky food fusion of Korean and Italian cuisine, and it's exactly how Joseph Calderaro feels about himself. Why wouldn't an adopted Korean drummer--comic book junkie feel like a combo platter given: (1) his face in the mirror (2) his proud Italian family. And now Joseph has to write an essay about his ancestors for social studies. All he knows is that his birth family shipped his diapered butt on a plane to the USA. End of story. But what he writes leads to a catastrophe messier than a table of shattered dishes--and self-discovery that Joseph never could have imagined.

Review quote

This will have special appeal for adoptees, but the questions about family roots that Kent raises are universal. --Booklist
