It's the Chinese New Year, and Pacy and her family in New York are preparing a delicious dinner in celebration. When Pacy asks about the Year of the Dog, her mom says it's a lucky year, and will be a good one for making new friends.
Pacy and her two sisters, Lissy and Ki-Ki, all go to the same school. But they're the only Asian-American students. Then one day Melody arrives. She's an Asian-American too, and they become friends, bonding over their shared love of yummy Chinese food. As the year progresses, Pacy's luck holds strong as she overcomes the many challenges grade-school-aged children face.
