Publisher's Summary

Frances, a Chinese-American student at an academically competitive school in San Francisco, has always had it drilled into her to be obedient to her mother and to be a straight-A student so that she can go to Med school. But is being a doctor what she wants? It has never even occurred to Frances to question her own feelings and desires until she accidentally winds up in speech class and finds herself with a hidden talent. Does she dare to challenge the mother who has sacrificed everything for her?

Critic Reviews

"Nancy Wu narrates from Frances’s point of view with a straightforward American accent. However, it is her reading of Frances’s mother that really shines. Her clipped Asian-accented English conveys all of Frances’s mother’s conviction and pride. Wu’s gentler portrayal of Frances allows the listener to hear the conflict in her voice as Frances must choose between her passion and her mother’s expectations." (AudioFile)
