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
