Wait for Me: A Novel by An Na [in Christian Science Monitor]

Wait for MeThis one will break your heart in the most haunting way. The follow-up to An Na’s Michael L. Printz Award-winning A Step From Heaven, is just as powerful – perhaps even more so – as her debut.

Mina is the perfect daughter for her overbearing Korean immigrant mother: she has her mother convinced that she is Harvard-bound, the National Honor Society president-to-be, just on the cusp of escaping through success to a much easier life away the family laundry. But enough is enough and Mina’s lying façade is cracked beyond repair and her thoughts of escape are anything but perfect.
