Chao, Gloria - American Panda - HARDCOVER - Pale Blue Sprayed Edges
At seventeen, Mei should be in high school, but skipping fourth grade was part of her parents’ master plan. Now a freshman at MIT, she is on track to fulfill the rest of this predetermined future: become a doctor, marry a preapproved Taiwanese Ivy Leaguer, produce a litter of babies.
With everything her parents have sacrificed to make her cushy life a reality, Mei can’t bring herself to tell them the truth—that she (1) hates germs, (2) falls asleep in biology lectures, and (3) has a crush on her classmate Darren Takahashi, who is decidedly not Taiwanese.
But when Mei reconnects with her brother, Xing, who is estranged from the family for dating the wrong woman, Mei starts to wonder if all the secrets are truly worth it. Can she find a way to be herself, whoever that is, before her web of lies unravels?
Our books are hand sprayed, and are available in a variety of colours.
We use actual acrylic spray paint, vs general acrylic paint. This ensures an even spray each time.
Book pricing will vary depending on:
-Book Format: Hardback/Paperback
-Condition of the actual book: Brand new/Like new/Good condition
-The actual spraying: any bleeding into the pages/front cover, and any minor mistakes will be taken into consideration when pricing books.
No book will be 100% perfect, as they are hand sprayed. Bleeding into the pages may occur, but care is taken to avoid this where possible.
