Book of the Week

Date Published: 17/11/2019

Wai Chim describes The Surprising Power of a Good Dumpling as ‘a contemporary YA novel set in Sydney that explores the difficulties, frustrations and emotional roller coaster that comes with having a parent with mental illness.’ 

Readers will love the main character and be challenged to walk a mile in her shoes to experience what it is like to grow up in a migrant family. It will certainly resonate with many students who are first or second generation migrants.

Teacher notes are available on the publisher’s website.
