Adopted when she was a baby, Mei-Ling Hopgood grew up in the Midwest and was never really curious about her Asian roots. Then one day, when she was in her twenties, her birth family finally came calling–on the phone, on the computer, by fax–in a language she didn’t understand. The Wangs wanted her to return home. But this unexpected reunion had a price; she uncovered secrets that haunt them to this day. Delving into Chinese culture and tradition, Hopgood tells a tale of love, frustration, hilarity, deep sadness, and great discovery as she comes to understand the true meaning of family.
