Girl In Translation…

By Jean Kwok This is my fluff piece for today, as I’m on deadline for a project. See you later darlings!

Girl In Translation was a  book I finished last month, and I decided it was good enough to let you know about it.  To me it was a really good book, it had me from the first couple of pages.  It’s more in the chick lit genre, a quick and easy read, but yet will keep you wanting to know what happens next.   The little girl, Kimberly Chang, who is the main character was a very strong individual for her age, and had to learn quickly how to survive, and protect herself and her mother on the streets of Brooklyn and Manhattan after they emigrated from Hong Kong to America, while barely speaking english.  No one should live in the circumstances they found themselves in (read the book!).

 As for the aunt in the story… I don’t want to spoil it for you, but she was a piece of work! I will say that the story does fast forward very quickly from Kimberly being 16 to an adult and how her life eventually turned out.  I felt it left  out part of her life story.  The adult Kimberly came in the form of an epilogue, but other than that if you’re looking for a quick read, this is it!   Happy Friday… Smooches!
