“When June was young, Chinatown was a magic place where nearly everyone looked like her. It was where A-Nging would take her on Sundays to eat dim sum and she would gorge on egg tarts and steamed rice cakes. Now she just thought about what an incredible pain it was to come here with a car.”
June tries to be a dutiful granddaughter, always bringing gifts on her weekend visits (if not a husband or great-grandchildren). But when her grandmother takes in a mysterious infant, June learns her own childhood—and her parents’ disappearance—may not have been what it seemed.
