Ruby Lu's deaf cousin, Flying Duck, and her parents come from China to live with Ruby Lu. Ruby Lu does not know sign language or Chinese, but she does her best to help Flying Duck adjust to America. Ruby Lu works so hard helping her cousin that she doesn't do her own school work or keep up with her own friends. This summer, Ruby Lu faces several challenges: summer school (could be fun), swimming lessons (extremely dangerous), making up with her friend, Ellen (difficult), and keeping a stray dog (needs a miracle.) This is the sequel to Ruby Lu, Brave and True.

In the story 'Ruby's Wish' by Shirin Yim Bridges, we get a small glimpse into the Chinese culture through the eyes of a little girl who loved the color red. Ruby always dressed in red because in China, red is the color of celebration. She lived in the house that Grandfather built. It was a huge home because he had many wives, who had many sons, who had many children. So at one time, Grandfather's house overflowed with the laughter of over 100 children. He loved and cared for them all. He even noticed little Ruby's thirst for knowledge and was impressed at how hard she worked on her lessons. Ruby was permitted to continue in school while most Chinese girls left the schoolroom to learn how to keep house. But Ruby knew that the day would come when she would have to marry and end her dreams of going to the University. But Grandfather had other plans for Ruby. His plans were all wrapped up in the color red. Read this beautifully illustrated story to see if Ruby finally gets her wish.
