Little Fires Everywhere
If you enjoyed We All Love the Beautiful Girls, then you’ll love Little Fires Everywhere.
“Readers who enjoyed the run away hit Little Fires Everywhere will devour this new, slightly edgier fiction release, We All Love the Beautiful Girls.”Katie, Anderson's Bookshop
Frankly in Love
“This book really hit it out of the park for me; as an Asian-American I could really relate to the main character in a lot of ways. An example of this, is Frank's wanting to please his parents, but yet also be his own person was something that I think most people, myself included can identify with. There are definitely plot twists that keep you on your toes. It was humorous, enjoyable, and well written. I would definitely re-read this one again! I think I would even like a physical copy!”Cassie, The Bluestocking Bookshop

“Ever Wong’s loving, but very strict, Chinese American parents expect her to go to medical school to assume the profession her father gave up when they moved to America to provide her with a better life. But Ever, an accomplished dancer, has dreams of her own. When her parents send her to an elite summer school program in Taipei to study her cultural heritage and language, a whole new world opens up for Ever. The freedom to skip classes, break rules, and explore new friendships leads to plenty of eye-opening experiences and busting of long-held stereotypes. But will Ever figure out how to balance her life in both of her worlds and maybe even fall in love? Remember the old saying, “Don’t judge a book by its cover”? Despite what you might assume from a glance, this story is so much more than a teen romance novel.”Becky, Rediscovered Books

On Earth We're Briefly Gorgeous
“Alright 2019, this is the novel to beat. On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous is the rare novel that makes you experience reading in a slightly different way and shows you that, no matter how many books you’ve read, something new and uniquely beautiful can still be found. The novel takes the form of a letter written by the main character, Little Dog, to his mother — an immigrant from Vietnam who cannot read. The power of Vuong’s poetic writing shimmers with every paragraph, and each phrase is a carefully considered, emotional journey. Grappling with themes of identity, sexuality, addiction, violence, and finding your place in a world where you feel you don’t belong, this book already feels like a modern classic, destined to be read and talked about for years to come.”Caleb Masters, Bookmarks
