did you google the translation after reading the teaser?

“Say something in Mandarin,” said Tessa, with a smile.
Jem said something that sounded like a lot of breathy vowels and
consonants run together, his voice rising and falling melodically: “Ni
hen piao liang.”
“What did you say?” Tessa was curious.
“I said your hair is coming undone — here,” he said, and reached out
and tucked an escaping curl back behind her ear. Tessa felt the blood
spill hot up into her face, and was glad for the dimness of the
carriage. “You have to be careful with it,” he said, taking his hand
back, slowly, his fingers lingering against her cheek.

No, I didn't need a translator since I can understand Chinese.

"Ni hen piao liang" actually means "you're very beautiful".

Jem's super sweet! Plus, I find it unique that he can speak Chinese (well, Mandarin). And I like that I can translate. I guess Chinese class has use, after all (:

OHMYGOSH WHEN I WAS ON PAGE 186(YES I MEMORIZED THE PAGE NUMBER XD) OF CLOCKWORK ANGEL AND READ THAT PARAGRAPH I STARTED FREAKING OUT BECAUSE I KNEW JEM WAS LYING WHEN HE SAID "YOUR HAIR IS COMING UNDONE" YA LIE JEM YOU LIE AHHHHH I WAS FREAKING OUT!!!! I didn't have to look it up I already speak Mandarin AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH I STARTED SQUEALING AND FREAKING OUT I WAS IN STUDYHALL XD


Yes definitely team Jem. He is so nice, and giving. He's not selfish and doesn't ask anything from anybody. I hope he gets Tessa in the end because it's the only thing he will ever really want (besides a cure of course). Will pretty much gets what he wants and damages people in the process.

TEAM JEM!!


I'm Chinese, so I knew what it what. I just didn't really think about it. So sweet! Jem, I officially love you now.

I never thought I'd say this but, TEAM JEM!
