Fiction • 14 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Narrator Nancy Wu creates subtly distinct voices for all of the Wangs, a wealthy Chinese-American family whose circumstances suddenly and radically change. Charles Wang, the family patriarch who dreams of returning to China, embarks on a cross-country road trip from California to upstate New York to join his eldest daughter, Saina. Wu successfully personifies the different perspectives of Charles, son Andrew, daughter Grace, and wife/stepmother Barbara, and she delivers dialogue in Mandarin as well as English. As the family members encounter misadventures, make some questionable decisions, and close ranks, it's hard not to root for them and hope everything's going to turn out for the best.
