A GRAPHIC NOVEL YOU WILL NOT FORGET!
I usually don't read a lot of graphic novels... But all that will probably change because of this awesome book.
American Born Chinese by Gene Luen Yang teaches us once again that we as humans are not different from one another after all. The plot of the book is emotionally driven and the characters are very identifiable.
The illustrations are as expressive as the story but yet have a beautiful subtlety. Once you grab this book, you will not want to put down until you have read the very last page.
For grades 7 and up.
