Description


This "first-rate," hysterically funny debut novel "that belongs on every multicultural reading list" ("Kirkus Reviews") is one of "Kirkus"'s Best Books of 2013.
When Vee Crawford-Wong's history teacher assigns an essay on his family history, Vee knows he's in trouble. His parents--Chinese-born dad and Texas-bred Mom--are mysteriously and stubbornly close-lipped about his heritage. So, Vee makes up an essay about the grandfather he never knew.
The deception begins to spiral out of control when Vee and his best friend, Madison, forge a letter from his relatives in China, asking his father to bring Vee for a visit. Astonishingly, Vee's father agrees. But halfway around the world is a long way to go to find what Vee has been searching for the whole time--who he really is.
