American Born Chinese - Gene Luen Yang This was such a fun graphic novel. I enjoyed myself tremendously. I thought the plot of getting three seemingly unrelated stories come together in the end was fun and unique; you don't necessarily see this type of plot in books. I enjoyed most of the characters and the way Yang showed racism in this simplistic cartoony drawn comic was brilliant. Monkey King was the best character! (I'm just saying...) I am very glad my best friend recommended this book to me. I don't really have anything negative to say about this book except that at times... it was... weird. XD But in a good way. If graphic novels are your thing then you should definitely check this one out. It's fun, cute, engaging, thought-provoking, and weird on a number of levels! Give this book a chance. You will not regret it.
