*** A finalist for the "Women's Non-Fiction" and "Multicultural Non-Fiction" awards at The 10th Annual IAN Book of the Year Awards *** Following her heart to a better life far away from home ... With no backup plan, Apple left Beijing right after the Tiananmen crackdown in 1989 to pursue her doctoral education in America. She had no idea her American life would start in a small city that drastically differed from her image of America and her life in Beijing. Apple was anxious, ignorant, broken, lost, and homesick. But she was also excited, curious, open-minded, fearless, adventurous, and resilient. Did she survive the fish-out-of-the-water situation that many immigrants experienced? Apple's story transcends the Pacific Ocean, cultures, time, and personal comfort zone. She invites readers to join her on the journey of the first eight months she spent in America with a blend of humility, humor, honesty, and vulnerability. Las Crosses is a mesmerizing Asian American memoir. If you like resilient people, light-hearted humor, and fast-paced page-turners, then you'll love Apple An's inspirational account. Read what other readers said about Las Crosses in the reviews. Buy the book now to be captivated today! You won't be disappointed!
