Half a Heart
When Fiona must check off her race on an enrollment form for a class at the local recreation center, she has trouble fitting herself into the boxes. Despite Fiona's objections to neat categorizations, the author's characterizations of Fiona she looks Chinese but likes Scottish dancing and of her brother he looks mostly white but enjoys kung-fu at times seem a bit too symmetrically flip-flopped. Readers will identify with Fiona's struggle to fit in and the comic if familiar stunts she attempts e. The conflicts can feel artificial, and the narrative sometimes lacks immediacy, as Fiona tends to recount character traits and background rather than letting these unfold dynamically. While many will cheer Fiona as she reconciles appearances and family pressures, the conclusion feels obvious. Ages
