Really interesting account of a Chinese-Canadian family in Vancouver Chinatown during the Depression and leading up to WWII. Told from the points of view of three of the children. Definitely provides new insight into the Chinese immigrant experience. Choy provides wonderful visuals and really allows you to get lost in the story.

Multiple award-winning memoir of a Chinese-Canadian boy and his community in the 1940s. Beautifully written, engaging story with well drawn characters and gently bittersweet situations interspersed among the usual family and school life experiences shared by most of us.
