Review quote

Life's twists and turns are like the tail of a dragon, but this intrepid American millennial holds on tight to her dreams to carve out her place (creatively, financially and romantically) in Hong Kong--a world far from home. Shannon Young's delightful memoir shows us that true discoveries are made when we let go of who we think we are and embrace who we might become.--Leza Lowitz, author of Here Comes The Sun
