The Surprising Power of a Good Dumpling by Wai Chim- Our Review


Indie Book of the Year Young Adult 2020
The 2020 ABIA Longlist- Book of the Year for Older Children (ages 13+)

Our Review:
Gorgeous and dashing Rory comes crashing into teenager Anna Chui’s crazy world, quickly becoming a welcome distraction from her ordinary life.

Anna has her hands full; between school work, looking after her siblings and helping out at her Dad’s restaurant things are not always easy.

Her Mum also struggles- struggles to get out of bed for months on end, her mental wellness deteriorating rapidly.

A wondeful book for teens. A deep, emotional journey of first love, culture, family and the strength to fight.
