Nothing But The Truth (and a few white lies) by Justina Chen Headley

Nothing But The Truth (and a few white lies) by Justina Chen Headley

Nothing But The Truth

Not quite a banana (Asian on the outside, but white on the inside), and not quite an egg (a white kid who gets off on all things Asian)

A clash of cultures and with enough witty humour sprinkled throughout to keep me smiling throughout Nothing but the Truth, this book is brilliant.

Follow Patty Ho as she navigates family dynamics (and a domineering mother) in this feel-good diverse story.
