Reading Without Walls
American Born Chinese
By Gene Luen Yang

Jin Wang starts at a new school where he's the only Chinese-American student. When a boy from Taiwan joins his class, Jin doesn't want to be associated with an FOB like him. Jin just wants to be an all-American boy, because he's in love with an all-American girl. Danny is an all-American boy: great at basketball, popular with the girls. But his obnoxious Chinese cousin Chin-Kee's annual visit is such a disaster that it ruins Danny's reputation at school, leaving him with no choice but to transfer somewhere he can start all over again. The Monkey King has lived for thousands of years and mastered the arts of kung fu and the heavenly disciplines. He's ready to join the ranks of the immortal gods in heaven. But there's no place in heaven for a monkey. Each of these characters cannot help himself alone, but how can they possibly help each other? They're going to have to find a way―if they want fix the disasters their lives have become.

Boxers & Saints (boxed set)
By Gene Luen Yang

In two volumes, Boxers & Saints tells two parallel stories. The first is of Little Bao, a Chinese peasant boy whose village is abused and plundered by Westerners claiming the role of missionaries. Little Bao, inspired by visions of the Chinese gods, joins a violent uprising against the Western interlopers. Against all odds, their grass-roots rebellion is successful.

But in the second volume, Yang lays out the opposite side of the conflict. A girl whose village has no place for her is taken in by Christian missionaries and finds, for the first time, a home with them. As the Boxer Rebellion gains momentum, Vibiana must decide whether to abandon her Christian friends or to commit herself fully to Christianity.

Level Up
By Gene Luen Yang; art by Thien Pham

Nothing is what it seems when life collides with video games. Dennis Ouyang has always struggled in the shadow of his parents’ expectations: Stay focused in high school, do well in college, go to medical school, and become a gastroenterologist. But between his father’s death, his academic burnout, and his deep (and distracting) love of video games, Dennis can’t endure. He’s kicked out of college. And that’s when things get ... weird. Four adorable—but bossy—angels, straight out of a sappy greeting card, appear and take charge of Dennis’s life. He’s back on track to become a gastroenterologist. But is he living the life he wants?

New Super-Man 1: Made in China
By Gene Luen Yang; art by Viktor Bogdanovic and others

Teenager Kong Kenan lives in Shanghai with his auto mechanic father and a huge chip on his shoulder. But when Kenan stands up to a super-villain and becomes a national hero, he gets the chance to be much more than a hero. Kenan is about to become one of a new breed of Chinese superheroes, imbued with the powers of their Western namesakes. Suddenly, Kong Kenan has all the powers of a Kryptonian. He's the new Super-man -- and he is not ready for the responsibility. Along with his fellow new heroes in the Justice League of China, Bat-Man and Wonder-Woman, Kenan takes orders from the mysterious Ministry of Self-Reliance, which gave him his powers. And there's more to the Ministry -- and the mysterious Flying Dragon General and his group of 'super villains' -- than meets the eye. Can brash, impulsive and cocky Kong Kenan prove himself worthy of being the New Super-Man after all?

The Shadow Hero
By Gene Luen Yang; art by Sonny Liew

The Shadow Hero is based on the golden-age comics series The Green Turtle, whose hero solved crimes and fought injustice just like any other comics hero. But this mysterious masked crusader was hiding something more than your run-of-the-mill secret identity ... the Green Turtle was the first Asian American superhero. Now, exactly seventy years, New York Times-bestselling author Gene Luen Yang has revived this nearly forgotten, pioneering character in a new graphic novel that creates an origin story for the golden-age Green Turtle.
