Book Review
The graphic novel format is perfect for conveying the author's story of how it feels to be an Asian growing up in the U.S. The illustrations aptly and humorously capture the awkward teenage years of just wanting to fit in.  Yang creatively intertwines traditional Asian stereotypes and the Monkey King's story with his own.
