About The Book

Fresh Off the Boat meets Junie B. Jones in this adorable chapter book series following Mindy Kim, a young Asian American girl—in this twelfth and final novel, Mindy and her family vacation to South Korea.

Mindy is so excited to go back to Korea—not only are she, Dad, and Julie going to the popular tourist spot, Jeju Island, it’s baby Charlie’s first big international trip! Mindy can’t wait for some lazy days on the beach and to see the natural sites unique to the island. But the trip gets off to a rocky start, and Mindy finds herself hoping this first vacation together won’t be memorable for all the wrong reasons!
