    ePUB altobmen.pro ¸ Girl in Translation PDF ß Girl in Epub / girl ebok, translation ebok, Girl in book, Girl in Translation MOBII'm very hesitant to review this book mostly because I'm not uite sure how to put to words what it is that reading this has made me feelIt is at once both very familiar and yet completely foreign The Cantonese the way that the author translates the slang and the phrases the cultural traditions the deeply embedded lifestyle that is Chinese pride and saving facewhen I read about that it was like something sparked in my blood This part I understand and I have livedBut then there's the fact that this story is told from the perspective of an immigrant to America and I am very much an ABC American born Chinese or as Aunt Paula would say a bamboo shoot So there's this whole other dimension of the story that is just as significant as the Cantonese that I simply can't comprehend It's as if I'm a relative but once removedOverall I don't think I've been as deeply moved by any other book I've read this year than I have by
