About this title

Synopsis:

Based on personal experience, NY1 sports reporter Michelle Yu and lawyer Blossom Kan introduce a dazzling, quick-witted debut to the chick lit scene. Set in New York City, "China Dolls" is the story of three best friends from childhood, each an unforgettable Asian woman tackling her late twenties over drinks, laughs, and dim sum. M.J. - The sportswriter struggling to fit into her family's traditional Chinese culture and the very white, very male world of sports. Alex - The attorney fighting the submissive Asian woman stereo-type and the fear of taking risks after a heartbreaking romance. Un - The investment banker trying not to relive her mother's mistakes - until she falls for the office playboy...This title explores life at the intersection of two worlds - one of Asian grandmothers and red envelopes, and another of career challenges and dating disasters. This vibrant, authentic novel is sure to resonate with fans of fresh, multicultural fiction.
