Jasmine is so excited to celebrate Girl’s Day, a Japanese holiday for women and girls. But her excitement starts to wane when things begin to take a downward turn. Her older sister is suddenly “too old” for Girl’s Day, her best friend becomes upset with her, and she breaks a promise that she had made to her neighbor. Using her extraordinary observation skills, Jasmine is able to save her family’s traditional celebration of Girl’s Day, while starting some new traditions along the way.
