Curtis Chin smoothly narrates this memoir of his life and his family's Chinese restaurant, where he worked while growing up. Don't listen to this audiobook when you're hungry--all the food sounds delicious! Chin was raised in Detroit in the 1980s by a mother who set high standards for him and his siblings because she herself wasn't allowed to finish school. He learns how to navigate public school and is elected class president on a platform of eliminating the student smoking lounge and distributing free mints from his family's restaurant. The transition from high school to college is rocky as Chin experiences the inner conflict of wanting to honor his family while striking out on his own and exploring his sexuality.
