I finished Yang the Youngest and His Terrible Ear this hour. Author Lensey Namioka manages to touch on several serious topics (diversity, family expectations, prejudice…) in this children’s book without being heavy-handed. I really enjoyed the wry humor she used for the youngest Yang to narrate his story. This is part of a series about each of the Yang children adjusting to life in Seattle after their violinist father moved the family there from Shanghai.

What to read next? I feel like I need to switch gears completely. I’ll probably start Julie and Julia and see how that goes.
