I normally wouldn't have read this book, but it was recommended to me by a co-worker who said it was hilarious. Since it's about the neighborhood I grew up in and currently live in, I gave it a shot. I really liked it!

It's a coming-of-age story of a Vietnamese immigrant and the trials he goes through trying to acclimate himself to American and Asian-American culture in the San Gabriel valley. There are plenty of upsetting and sad parts to the story, but there's also humor and insight.

I especially liked this because I could relate to the whole Asian tiger-parent thing.
