China Boy by
Call Number: FIC LEE CHINA (322 pages)
SUMMARY: Warm, funny, and deeply moving, Gus Lee's semi-autobiographical account of growing up in a conflict-ridden family, unable to fully embrace either American or Chinese culture, is an enthralling story of family relationships, the perils of boyhood, and the difficulty of being Chinese in 1950's San Francisco. - (Google Books)
RECOMMENDATION: "I like this book, but I hate this book too. First, of all, the book uses a lot of Chinese spelling words I can't understand very well. However, the book tells me about the real life in the USA in 1950-1970. In my opinion, I think he [the author] can use more English to explain what the Chinese mean. It will help everyone to read it. Second he can tell us more about social USA or America. Finally, I hope people read this book to know more about what is true in the past."
