Resumen:

Lucky Girl : Mei-Ling Hopgood was an all-American girl. She grew up in the Midwest, studied journalism at the University of Missouri, and became a reporter for a Michigan newspaper. Adopted when she was a baby, she was never really curious about her Asian roots. Then one day, when she was in her twenties, her birth family from Taiwan came calling -- on the phone, on the computer, by fax -- in a language she didn't understand. The Wangs wanted to meet her; they wanted her to return home. But this unexpected reunion has a price, as she uncovers devastating secrets that haunt the Wangs to this day. Lucky Girl journeys into Chinese culture -- its magnificent sights, war-torn history, and sumptuous foods -- while revealing the personal suffering wrought by the country's tightly held traditions. Mei-Ling's is a tale of love and loss, frustration, hilarity, deep sadness, and great discovery as she comes to understand the true meaning of family.
