American Born Chinese

Gene Luch Yang (A) and (ILT)

List Price: $8.99 (Paperback - Youth - Culture / Race, Identity, Self Acceptance / Three Asian Students - 2008)

Description: A tour-de-force by rising indy comics star Gene Yang, American Born Chinese tells the story of three apparently unrelated characters: Jin Wang, who moves to a new neighborhood with his family only to discover that hes the only Chinese-American student at his new school; the powerful Monkey King, subject of one of the oldest and greatest Chinese fables; and Chin-Kee, a personification of the ultimate negative Chinese stereotype, who is ruining his cousin Dannys life with his yearly visits. Their lives and stories come together with an unexpected twist in this action-packed modern fable. American Born Chinese is an amazing ride, all the way up to the astonishing climax. (240 pages) Young Adult

Ashay says, "This award winning book, stuck a chord with many teens (of all colors) in that they identified with some of the social problems the three Asian boys encountered trying to fit in at school. Lots of humor in dealing with issues of culture, race and identity. The real challenge is learning how to accept themselves."
