Description

April Chen is happily planning to go away to college, and she has a great new boyfriend, Steve. But April, the only girl in the family, must take care of Grandma, and Grandma--the Dragon Lady--hates Steve and has other plans for April. Caught between two cultures, the teenager finally realizes she must find a way to define herself on her own terms. "Sparked by Namioka's own experiences as an Asian American, April's first-person narrative rings true with uncertainty, joy, and hope."--"School Library Journal"
