American Born Chinese by Gene Luen Yang
American Born Chinese

trackie26, May 29, 2008

The book has 3 little stories in it making it a little weird in the beginning, but as the book goes along the stories will blend together. One of the stories is about a monkey king who for gets that he is a monkey after he masters all of the kun-fu’s. Making him get trapped under a mountain of rocks that he can’t escape because of his ignorance. Then there is another story where the Chinese kid wants to be a transformer so that he can transform and be like every one else, he wants this so bad that he transforms in to an American kid. The other is an American boy who gets embarrassed when his Chinese cousin comes over to visit. This is a good book that shows you to except who you are and where you come from so that there will be peace in you life. and this is a fast read because it makes you want more.
