I’ve also noticed that I tend to independently pick up good to read that Roxane Gay has reviewed – who knows, we could all be best book buds! Kirstin’s second novel Bury What We Cannot Take, published in 2018, is set against the backdrop of early Maoist China and follows a mother, father, brother and sister as they grapple with an agonizing decision and attempt to flee mainland China. The topic the author is trying to discuss has already been discussed multiple times by other authors like Kevin Kwan. It’s also a story of model minority syndrome interlaced with a larger conversation about what it means to be successful in this system. The twist halfway through Counterfeit is undoubtedly its biggest strength, forcing the reader to reconsider everything they just read about Ava’s side of the story.

Ava is an American born to immigrant parents and she has several moments where she is confronted with her own privilege. Enter Winnie Fang, Ava's enigmatic college roommate from Mainland China, who abruptly dropped out under mysterious circumstances. The way the story was structured, plus the fast pace of the plot, definitely made for a fascinating read!Ava Wong is a successful lawyer with a picture-perfect family, but behind the scenes, her marriage—and life—are falling apart.

Chen spins a clever tale offering two sides of a story involving a complicated friendship and knockoff handbags. It seems some authors like Kirstin Chen are never planning to change this writing style, which is dangerous to many people in different ways. The story of two Asian American women’s wildly successful counterfeit handbag scheme has already been optioned for television. It’s funny because going into the novel, I thought about how I’m not caught up in expensive purses anymore.Written in an almost, but not quite, stream-of-consciousness style, Part I unfolds from the perspective of Ava Wong.
