Author Karen Cheung narrates this unique coming-of-age memoir about growing up in contemporary Hong Kong. She is precise and measured in her sharing of these emotionally packed chapters. She holds nothing back--from her PTSD, caused by witnessing unsuccessful protests, to her conflicted family relationships. For those who would like to learn more about this complex region, this is a gentle entry into a layered past and present. Cheung shows the overlapping historical and political tensions that result from the constant looming presence of China. This is an easy listen whose segments carry us along Cheung's childhood memories and later sweep us through the same streets with hard-won wisdom.
