The last of the Golden Mtn Chronicles touches on the plight of modern Chinese Americans that are half-Chinese and half-Caucasion. Stacy has always felt herself to just be an American until a Chinese girl comes to her school, causes conflict, and forces her to see that others really see her differently. As she tries to save the new girl and solve a mystery, she learns about her mother's heritage in San Francisco's Chinatown and learns what it means to be herself.
this book was about how this chinese american girl named stacey that needs to accept how it's like to be half asian and half white. others in her society calls her mixed and it really hurts her feelings because she didn't expect people to see right through her and isolate her from the school just becuase shes mixed.
