About the Book

These stories take us into the turbulent lives of Asian-Canadian teenagers. We are drawn into their struggles to balance their parents’ expectations against the pull of today’s urban youth culture. Yee gives us a vivid snapshot of the tensions which arise from the immigration experience as he explores its profound impact upon the lives of young people.

Praise for What Happened This Summer:

“Yee’s teens are not only credible; they will stick with readers just as Salinger’s Glass family has.” — Kliatt

“These stories offer a varied, thought-provoking picture of a community Yee has long profiled.” — Toronto Star
