    Michelle, I’m so glad that you saw something of your own story in my work. Thanks so much for getting in touch. Now that I live abroad, I really miss New York’s Chinatown. 🙂

    Hi Jean,

    Thank you so for writing Girl in Translation! As someone who grew up in Chinatown Manhattan, I saw many parallels between the book and my childhood experiences. My parents came to New York not knowing English and with only a high school degree from China. The immigrant experience is very real and the book spoke to me in many ways.
