Busting stereotypes

A review of American Born Chinese by Gene Luen Yang

This is an amazing graphic novel. It offers the perspective of many different people and characters from different places. It also busts a lot of stereotypes from different categories. It shows what can be felt when a new person comes that is easy to assume things about. I think that this is a great book to read in your free time as it is funny as well as educational. It does not, however, show how it is educational, you just read it and understand it and enjoy it. I would definitely recommend this book to people as it is a great, and pretty quick read. Other books by Gene Luen Yang include The Shadow Hunter, Boxers and Saints, and many more.
