We were really thrilled and delighted to welcome author Sue Cheung to Oathall on Monday 11 November. Sue Cheung visited to speak to Year 9 students about her latest book ‘Chinglish’.
The book is about the up’s and down’s of Jo Kwan a teenager growing up in 1980s Coventry with her annoying little sister, too-cool older brother, a series of very unlucky pets and utterly bonkers parents. But unlike the other kids at her new school or her posh cousins, Jo lives above her parents’ Chinese takeaway.
Told in diary entries and doodles, Jo’s brilliantly funny observations about life, family and char siu make for a searingly honest portrayal of life on the other side of the takeaway counter.
