American Born Chinese Overview

American Born Chinese, by Gene Yang, is a multi-award-winning graphic novel for young adults. In Yang's novel, three stories gradually converge: that of Jin Wang, the only Chinese-American student in his new school; that of Chin-Kee, a personification of negative stereotypes about Chinese people; and that of the Monkey King, a powerful figure from Chinese traditional stories. The three stories, as well as the unexpected ways in which the lives of these three characters come together, explore themes of identity, prejudice, and coming of age.
