Shu-Li and Diego tells the story of how these two classmates meet the challenge of taking care of Baxter, a neighbor's dog. The two friends face disaster when Baxter runs away and they have to break the news to its owner.

"Vivid characters and challenging plots create thought-provoking moral ambiguity for Yee’s readership...Wang’s shaded black and white line drawings and Yee’s chapter format create the feeling of a grownup book for newly independent readers, while younger children and their parents will appreciate Shu-Li and her friends as role models and will look forward to hearing more about them in this promising series."
