An action-packed story with vibrant illustrations, magic and myths, and poignant messages about friendship and family, the colorful art of this graphic novel sucks you in and keeps you entertained with Grace’s adventures. Grace is new in Hong Kong, but after accidentally hatching a dragon, making new friends isn’t her biggest concern anymore; it’s up to Grace and her newfound friends to save the dragon from mysterious forces who want to steal the dragon’s power.

— Jenna, Wild Rumpus

Grace and her friends must protect a newly hatched dragon from mysterious evildoers.

When Grace moves to Hong Kong with her mom and new stepdad, her biggest concern is making friends at her fancy new boarding school. But when a mysterious old woman gifts her a dragon egg during a field trip, Grace discovers that the wonderful stories of dragons she heard when she was a young girl might actually be real--especially when the egg hatches overnight.

The dragon has immense powers that Grace has yet to understand. And that puts them both in danger from mysterious forces intent on abusing the dragon's power. And now it's up to Grace and her school friends to uncover the sinister plot threatening the entire city!
