American Born Chinese
Part realistic fiction, part fantasy, this book is the story of growing up and making choices - for good and for ill - in a graphic novel format.
This is an entertaining book that is rich with discussion opportunities about choices people make, how they define themselves, and how they treat others. Some bawdy humor makes it inappropriate for most elementary school readers. It is a unique story, yet it has a wide range of appeal.
"By the time he leaves, no one thinks of me as Danny anymore. I'm Chin-kee's cousin."
