American Born Chinese

American Born Chinese by GeneLuen Yang is a graphic novel for adolescents in high school. By combining stories of Chineses myth and modern Chinese-American culture, the novel sends the message of how important it is to be aware of all cultures as an American. The graphics in the novel are bright and fun, which match the quirky and humorous tone of the book. I think the book is beautiful because it works well as a transition book for high schoolers who do not like to read; anything that gets kids more into reading and education is beautiful, but I especially enjoy the humor of this book.
