Summary

American Born Chinese meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer in this grounded supernatural YA mash-up.

The struggle to get into a top-tier college consumes 16-year-old Genie's every waking thought. But when she discovers she's a celestial spirit who's powerful enough to bash through the gates of heaven with her fists, her perfectionist existence is shattered. Enter Quentin, a transfer student from China whose tone-deaf assertiveness beguiles Genie to the brink of madness. Quentin nurtures Genie's bodacious transformation - sometimes gently, sometimes aggressively - as her sleepy suburb in the Bay Area comes under siege from hell spawn.

This epic YA debut draws from Chinese folklore, features a larger-than-life heroine, and perfectly balances the realities of Genie's grounded high school life with the absurd supernatural world she finds herself commanding.

Really enjoyable!

I really liked this one! I've been craving some non-European fantasy and this is great.

Super fun retelling

If you enjoy the original Chinese folklore at all, you’ll enjoy this retelling. Humorous, with enough serious moments to bring to life a really fun story - Nancy Wu is perfect for this book.
