Read in November, 2007

It was ok. Lots of potential in the topic, and some interesting details here and there, but ultimately disappointing in both the problem and its resolution. Not a memorable book or one I'd especially recommend, unless you're especially interested in novels of immigrant experience. The gifted child aspect (which was what drew me to the novel) was unconvincingly portrayed, and rather diminished by the novel's focus on overbearing parenting.
