American Born Chinese

I read American Born Chinese by Gene Luen Yang and Lark Pien. It is a graphic novel and I recommend that you read it. I thought it was hilarious because they had things that every kid would think is funny. One thing that I thought was funny was the monkey king becoming so powerful and everyone saying that he wasn't so good and he said "they all needed a little convincing." And then he beat them up.

It was surprising that everyone wasn't who they said they were. At first I wouldn't think that Danny would be Gin. But then, he made a wish with that funny old lady who said, "You can get anything you wish as long as you are willing to give up your soul."

If you are a kid and you like graphic novels, you should read this.
