American born Chinese is a good book all in all, and I hope you will think good things of my review. In the book there are 3 stories, which makes the book interesting enough. Jin Wang is a Chinese-American boy in his new neighborhood and is, in fact, the only one in his school! He is constantly being picked on by bullies and makes it all worse by falling in love with an All-American girl. The Monkey King’s story about ruling over all monkeys is one of the oldest and greatest Chinese fables. But the Monkey King doesn’t want to be a monkey, he wants to be known as a god. Danny’s cousin Chin-Kee is a combination of every negative Chinese stereotype and shows it a little too much. Danny is a good athlete and a popular kid at school, but every time Chin-Kee comes around to visit by the end of the year it gets so bad that Danny has to transfer to a new school. I give this book five stars. I liked the comedy and the unique story telling. It was actually fun to read. I hope this author makes more good graphic novels like this one.
