An Amazon Best Book of October 2016: The Wangs vs the World is pure entertainment – filled with exuberant characters, comic predicaments and the ups and downs of every life. Charles Wang, a wildly successful businessman, has brought up his children in the lap of luxury. But in the prime of his life, and after one bad investment, his entire net worth is suddenly gone. Ever resilient and proud, Charles devises a scheme to recover his stature: He’ll return to China and reclaim the plot of land that decades ago was taken from his family. But first he has to tell his kids, take them out of college and boarding school and figure out a way to get there. A cross country adventure ensues – full of moments that will make you pine for the backseat, love your siblings and marvel at the road life takes. Read this book for its humor, for the compassion and energy that Jade Chang has infused in every scene, and the strings she pulls to expand your heart. —Al Woodworth, The Amazon Book Review

The Fortunes is the kind of book that raises far more questions than it resolves. Not only does it present a vast swathe of often-ignored history, in deftly fictionalized form, it’s an empathetic book, not just to its protagonists but to its secondary and tertiary characters and even, often, to its villains. It questions motivations, feelings, intentions, rarely certain despite the author’s fictional imperative. Sometimes I found myself wondering ― why is Vincent Chin’s friend curious at all about the kind of father-stepson relationship Chin’s killers had? Why should I care?  But The Fortunesisn’t out to convince you that you should care about that, or anything in particular. Instead, it’s doing what a great novel should do: revealing what there is to care about and to think about. Even better, it’s revealing those questions about a slice of history that America needs to be dealing with.  The Bottom Line: In a thought-provoking, sharply written, four-part novelistic chronicle of Chinese-American life, The Fortunes proves uneven at times but the powerful prose and themes shine through.”—Huffington Post
