Peasprout Chen: Battle of Champions

Peasprout Chen: Book #2
By Henry Lien
Narrated by Nancy Wu / 10 hours 25 minutes

"Narrator Nancy Wu expertly conveys Peasprout's hilarious snarkiness and spunk...Wu's varied voices and accents help distinguish the characters, reflecting the friendships, sibling relationships, and rivalries, but it's Wu's eager and vulnerably sincere Peasprout who gives the story heart."— AudioFile Magazine

This program includes original songs written and recorded by Henry Lien.

“It’s Hermione Granger meets Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon meets the Ice Capades meets Mean Girls." —The New York Times

Now in her Second Year at Pearl Famous Academy of Skate and Sword, Peasprout Chen strives to reclaim her place as a champion of wu liu, the sport of martial arts figure skating. But, with the new year comes new competition, and Peasprout’s dreams are thwarted by an impressive transfer student.

Yinmei is the heir to the Shinian throne and has fled her country for Pearl. When she excels both academically and socially, Peasprout begins to suspect that Yinmei is not a refugee at all but a spy. When the Empress of Shin threatens to invade the city of Pearl, Peasprout makes a bold decision. To keep her enemy close, Peasprout joins Yinmei's “battleband," a team that executes elaborate skating configurations that are part musical spectacle, part defensive attack.

In Henry Lien's Peasprout Chen: Battle of Champions, Peasprout guides her battleband on a mission to save Pearl, and learns what it truly means to be a leader.
