This new collection of short stories by Governor General's Award winning author Paul Yee confronts the secret lives of Chinese-Canadian teenagers as they battle with their parents over schooling, carreers, sexuality, religion and integration into North American culture. Once again Paul Yee offers a rare glimpse into the conflicted world of Chinese youth, some of whom are locally born, while others have recently immigrated from Hong Kong, Taiwan and China.

"Every teen of Chinese ancestry will identify with the characters and situations here. These stories will definitely serve the Asian-American (or Canadian) students in our high schools, and other students may come away with a better understanding of Asian-American students after reading this. Highly Recommended."
