This book is the second a

This book is the second about this family. You really need to read the first book about Mona's parents, immigrants from China, to understand where Mona is coming from at times (Typical American is the name of the first book). The book is about a first generation American Born Chinese girl and her teenage years. I love that she decides she is Jewish and converts. An interesting look at being a minority and learning to adapt and finding your place in the world.
