really liked it

Excellent read. Absorbing.

Story told by our heroine, Kimberly Chang, of her arrival in Brooklyn from Hong Kong, along with her mother. They live in extreme poverty and work extremely long hours.

Fortunately Kimberly is extremely intelligent and uses her talent to get them to a better life.

The 'along the way' story involves her loves, friendships and her learning how to live between the two different worlds she straddles.

A good read for all.
