want a personalized list of book recommendations? click ask & tell me about what you've been reading lately / what you'd like your list to cover. i'll then make you a list of at least ten books with short descriptions and (hopefully) links to longer reviews by me. i'm a children's librarian so kids'/YA books are my strong points, but i'm more than happy to give adult books a shot, too.
Book Review: The Fold
Joyce has always lived in her sister Helen’s shadow. Helen is beautiful, smart, an aspiring doctor – everything Joyce isn’t. Joyce would do anything to be beautiful like Helen, especially so she can attract the attention of her crush, John Ford Kang. So when Joyce’s aunt Gomo shows up with a once-in-a-lifetime offer, Joyce wants to jump at the opportunity. But Gomo’s gift of plastic surgery sounds like it will hurt, something Joyce isn’t good with at all. And Joyce just isn’t sure whether or not she should get ‘the fold’ - the eyelid surgery that will make her look more American and less Korean. Could the surgery help even her ugly face to be more appealing to John Ford Kang? And if not, was it worth it?
