Description Reviews
Mei-Ling Hopgood was an all-American girl. She grew up in the midwest, was a high school pom-pom girl, studied journalism at the University of Missour, and became a reporter for a Michigan newspaper. She wasn't really curious about her Asian roots, though she knew she was adopted.

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. As her sisters and parent pulled her into their lives, claiming her asw one of their own, Mei-Ling fell in love with them. But this unexpected reunion has a price, and she learns things she never wanted to know about why she was given away. Ever the enthusiastic journalist, Mei-Ling Hopgood turns her investigative skills to her own family in order to uncover the devastating secrets that haunt them to this day and to understand the choices of her birth birth mother.

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 finds that although both the Hopgoods and the Wangs have shaped her identity, it's up to her to figure out who she is. Hers is a tale of love and loss, frustration, hilarity, deep sadness and great discovery that helps her understand the meaning of family.
