Young Adult Ages 12+ • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Dual narrators Jennie Kwan and Eunice Wong deliver the first-person narrations of the two Chow sisters, who live in L.A.'s Chinatown in 1932. The pair are determined to solve the murder of their friend, film star Lulu Wong. Kwan's narration is more quickly paced, perfectly representing the bold, quick-acting 18-year-old Gemma. Wong's narration, deeper in tone, is equally apt for 19-year-old May, who is reserved, reflective, and careful. The sisters' two personalities sometimes clash, but most of the time their complementary perspectives help them get beyond police discrimination and upper-class privilege to solve the mystery before them. While the plot and characters take center stage, the two narrators evoke a sense of Hollywood glamour, the Depression, prejudice, and Chinese American culture of the time.
