Pie in the Sky by Remy Lai
Jingwen, his younger brother Yanghao, and mother venture into the unknown, immigrating to Australia, Mom works the night shift at a local bakery and Jingwen cares for his outgoing, impulsive younger sibling while she is away.
It's hard. School is strange. He doesn’t understand what people are saying. Kids at school ignore him. It’s like moving to Mars.
Relocation is exponentially difficult because his father is not with the family. Dad was killed in a car accident fourteen days before Jingwen’s birthday. This ten-year-old carries a heavy pocketful of resentment, guilt, and loneliness.
