three years the system destroys the family’s culture; the only thing left is the resilient great grandparents who now the parents can’t stand because they have given in to the system. A plot is what this story has and I plan to exploit it. The feeling of being alone is god awful. Three characters had to go through such pain, however, the way they overcame it was by realizing their differences and planning to over throw the system indirectly by becoming themselves. I couldn’t find a better way to summarize the book so it took it directly from the back cover. “Jin Wang starts at a new school where he’s the only Chinese-American

students. When a boy from Taiwan joins his class, Jin doesn’t want to be associated with an FOB like him. Jin just wants to be an all American boy: great at basketball, popular with the girls. But his obnoxious Chinese cousin Chin-Kee’s annual visit is such a disaster that it ruins Danny’s reputation at school, leaving him with no choice but to transfer somewhere he can start all over again. The monkey king has lived for thousands of years and mastered the arts of kung fu and the heavenly disciplines. He’s ready to join the ranks of the immortal gods in heaven. But there’s no place in heaven for a monkey. Each of theses characters cannot help himself alone.” This brief synopsis describes three different characters that have been sucked in to a system but they are trying to exact revenge on it. In other words they are rebelling against the system. The graphic novel is a great read only a person with supreme intellect and dashing good looks could read and understand such a piece of literature to its full potential. But to make sure the author will make more I have to be less selfish and refer it to others because if not then; how would the author stay comfortable.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
