From School Library Journal:

Grade 9 Up-This collection of poems, stories, and essays is published in association with Asian Women United of California, an organization that strives to create materials that "explore the many facets of Asian-American women's experiences and varied cultural heritages." Here that mission is accomplished through voices that reflect a wide array of life experiences and cultures, including Korean, Filipina, Pakistani, Indian, Japanese, Chinese, and others, as well as various combinations thereof. Topics covered include heritage, identity, family, love, body image, and sexuality, and range in tone from angry (Marilyn Chin's "Round Eyes") to wrenching (Davy Muth's "Exodus from Phnom Penh") to witty (Lynn Lu's "The Flat Truth") to moving (Barbara J. Pulmani Reyes's "Memoir"). Some pieces are graphic and/or emotionally raw, dealing with feelings of sadness, frustration, and rage, while others are celebratory and empowering. Overall, the book stands as a testament to love, intelligence, perseverance, and strength, as revealed to the authors by those closest to them. A good choice for students with Asian and non-Asian backgrounds alike, it contains a little something for everyone.
