The Surprising Power of a Good Dumpling by Wai Chim (Book Review)

Anna is trying to juggle school and raising her younger siblings while her mother is in a deep depressive episode and her father is running the family restaurant. It’s a lot, and it just keeps piling on.

This book does an excellent job at juggling a whole heap of different issues, from mental health to teen romance and family responsibility. I wanted Anna to have a better life, to have people around her who would accept (and seek) assistance, and to give her a chance at normalcy.
