Diana Ma


THE UNBEATABLE LILY HONG (my debut Middle Grade) out on Jan. 2, 2024!

“A smart, funny, and heartfelt middle grade novel about Lily Hong’s attempts to save her parents’ Chinese school and the town’s community center using all the resources she has—devoted friends, ingenuity, a passion for filmmaking, mediocre dance moves (at best), and perhaps even her archnemesis” (Publisher’s Description).
