The first sixteen years of his life had been colorful and complicated. There had been easy times, but there were difficult ones as well, but all were integral stages in life. Now, author Kevin Y. Lu shares the insights to his life as an American Born Chinese in his newly published memoir, ABC. In eleven briefly written vignettes, the author encapsulated the interesting moments of his first sixteen years. Engaging, thoughtful, and candid, these quick glimpses of his life allow readers to also see the momentous milestones that led to his maturation. He describes how depressed he was in "Broke at Age Three" when his mother taught him the value and importance of money; how he felt after "Cutting risk" when his mother encouraged him, only six years old at that time, to use real cooking knives instead of just plastic knives; how dejected he was when his mother confiscated his Gameboy because he was unintentionally manipulating her trust; how wronged he felt when his teacher didn't appreciate his cleverly written "Trump's Play"; and how prescient he was when pondering the significance of awards; and how incorrect his original thoughts were about the divine power teachers have over their students. He turns to a more serious tone as he relates his work experience in the business world through real estate; and finally his international job experience which allowed him to understand the reasons for the differences between America's and Australia's economy. These and more await readers as they get to know the author through the pages of ABC. From simple childhood adventures to involvement in serious business, the life of this Asian American has been far more complex than even he had thought.

In the comics boom of the 1940s, a legend was born: the Green Turtle. He solved crimes and fought injustice just like the other comics characters. But this mysterious masked crusader was hiding something more than your run-of-the-mill secret identity... The Green Turtle was the first Asian American super hero. The comic had a short run before lapsing into obscurity, but the acclaimed author of American Born Chinese, Gene Luen Yang, has finally revived this character in Shadow Hero, a new graphic novel that creates an origin story for the Green Turtle. With artwork by Sonny Liew, this gorgeous, funny comics adventure for teens is a new spin on the long, rich tradition of American comics lore.

Priyanka Das has so many unanswered questions: Why did her mother abandon her home in India years ago? What was it like there? And most importantly, who is her father, and why did her mom leave him behind? But Pri’s mom avoids these questions—the topic of India is permanently closed. For Pri, her mother's homeland can only exist in her imagination. That is, until she find a mysterious pashmina tucked away in a forgotten suitcase. When she wraps herself in it, she is transported to a place more vivid and colorful than any guidebook or Bollywood film. But is this the real India? And what is that shadow lurking in the background? To learn the truth, Pri must travel farther than she’s ever dared and find the family she never knew. In this heartwarming graphic novel debut, Nidhi Chanani weaves a tale about the hardship and self-discovery that is born from juggling two cultures and two worlds.
