Conteúdos: Story 1: "All Jin Wing wants is to fit in. When his family moves to a new neighborhood, he suddenly finds that he's the only Chinese American student at the school. Jocki and his bullies pick on him constantly, and he has hardly any friends. Then, to make matters worse, he falls in love with an all-American girl." Story 2: "Born to rule over all the monkeys in the world, the story of the Monkey King is one of the oldest and greatest Chinese fables. Adored by his subjects, master of the arts of kung-fu, he is the most powerful monkey on Earth. But the Monkey King doesn't want to be a monkey. He wants to be hailed as a god ..." Story 3: "Chin-Kee is the ultimate negative Chinese stereotype, and he's ruining his cousin Danny's life. Danny's a basketball player, a popular kid at school, but every year Chin-Kee comes to visit, and every year Danny has to transfer to a new school to escape the shame. This year, though, things quickly go from bad to worse" --

Not being a reader of graphic novels, I did not expect much from American born Chinese. Instead, I found myself looking at how a person of another culture twists themselves into being something else in order to fit in. Some characters even wanted to avoid being whom they discovered themselves to be....

Good GN to start with

I did it!  I finally read an entire graphic novel!  And I'm still alive to tell about it.  :)

My friend's 12-year-old daughter recommended it to me, so I figured it had to be pretty good.  She knows the whole manga thing confuses me, so she picked a GN that was more...
