Gene Luen Yang's graphic novel American Born Chinese won the Michael L. Printz Award in 2006 and was a finalist for the National Book Award for Young People's Literature. His newest book, The Eternal Smile, was released in April.
This pocket-sized volume collects eight years’ worth of Rina Ayuyang’s self-published autobiographical minicomics. Half the fun is seeing Ayuyang’s cartooning skills mature from page to page. She begins with a series of vignettes about her Filipino heritage, her obsession with football, and her boyfriend.
