Seven-year-old Kai Ting's life is pretty wretched. His aristocratic parents lost everything when they fled China, his mother died, and his father has married a Chinese-hating WASP. He has severe vision problems and "a body that made Tinker Bell look ruthless." Thus, he is prey to the neighborhood bully with no refuge other than his developing inner strength. This beautifully written story resonates with just about every child who ever grew up. Gus Lee's use of dialect is reminiscent of Mark Twain's and his characters are lovable, hateable, and unforgettable.
