Baker & Taylor
Oy, a member of the Quail Club--five friends who hatch and care for a baby quail--wants to perform a traditional Thai dance for the school talent show, but Liliandra threatens to kick her out of the Quail Club if she doesn't team up to do a very different kind of dance, forcing her to make a difficult decision.

Like THE GOLD-THREADED DRESS, Carolyn Marsden's acclaimed first novel, this sensitive and finely crafted sequel explores what it takes to be a true friend, and still be true to yourself.

Oy lives in America now, but she loves to go to the back room of Pak's auto shop on Saturdays to learn traditional Thai dances. She loves it almost as much as being a member of the Quail Club - five friends who gather after school to hatch and care for baby quail. When the teacher announces a talent show, Oy knows how proud her family and Pak would be to see her step onstage in her beautiful gold-threaded dress from Thailand. But bossy Liliandra vows to kick her out of the Quail Club if she won't team up for a very different kind of dance. Someone will be disappointed. But who?
