really liked it
Read in April, 2011

This is probably the best book I've read this year. It was concise and simple, really got its point across in a clear way. The book has themes of acceptance, assimilation, and stereotypes. The book is made up of four different stories that slowly come together to provide a great ending, where all the stories come together. The book explores the way Chinese people were treated and how they assimilated to American culture while still maintaining ther Chinese culture. The book also uses humourous pictures to make comprehension even easier. Overall this was a great book to read and I would recommend it to annyone looking for a fun and quick read.
