Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
A graphic novel by the author of Duncan's Kingdom alternates three interrelated stories about the problems of young Chinese Americans trying to participate in American popular culture.

Review:
"Compositions are tidy and the palette is softly muted, so that even the strongest colors in the action scenes never reach the intensity of a visual assault. Kids fighting an uphill battle to convince parents and teachers of the literary merit of graphic novels would do well to share this title."

Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, 11/01/2006

Review:
"[W]ith Chin-Kee's striking embodiment of ethnic confusion and self-betrayal, Gene Luen Yang has created that rare article: a youthful tale with something new to say about American youth."

Ned Vizzini, New York Times Book Review, 5/13/2007

Book Description: Roaring Brook Press, United States, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Revised ed. 197 x 130 mm. Brand New Book. This is a tour-de-force new work by rising indie comics star Gene Yang. American Born Chinese maps the adolescent Chinese-American experience through three separate but interwoven stories. One story centres on Jin Wang, a Chinese-American student at an all-white California high school. Jin is plagued by jocks and bullies, so when another Chinese student transfers to the school, Jin wants nothing to do with him. Next is a comic update of the legendary story of the Monkey King, an ancient Chinese morality tale. Finally, there s the gross and surreal stereotype of Chin-Kee, the ultimate negative Chinese cliche, complete with a sitcom-style laugh track . These three apparently unrelated tales come together in an astonishing climax - all with a mighty blast of humour, surprising poignancy and skilled artistry. Bookseller Inventory # AA99781596431522
