Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Jason Shen, 17, wants to leave his small town in Canada and return to China, where he and his mother lived until four years ago. His white high-school teachers do not know how smart he is, and his classmates jeer at him. Driven to join the crowd of potheads, he bonds especially with his Native American classmate, Charles (“Chief”). Narrated in Jason’s wry, first-person, present-tense narrative, Yee’s slim novel packs in a lot. The story is comedic in scenes of Jason’s cultural confusion and realistic about racism, both toward the immigrant kid and also within his own family (Jason’s aunt thinks “those Native people are the worst”). Desperate after the police catch him buying drugs for his friends, Jason thinks of suicide, but he finds help in surprising places. The clipped dialogue perfectly echoes the contemporary scene, the harsh prejudice felt by both the new immigrant and the Native American, and their gripping friendship story. Grades 6-10. --Hazel Rochman --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

The train swings around the curve. Noise and wind swallow me. I jump. Jason is on outsider. A recent immigrant from China, he lives in a close-minded town with his mother and younger brother. Trying hard to fit in, Jason falls in with the wrong crowd and ends up in trouble with the police. Jason finds he needs to fight to belong. Does he have what it takes to make this new place his home? --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
