M. Elaine Mar and her mother emigrated from Hong Kong to Denver to join her father when she was five. Working with her family in the kitchen of a Chinese restaurant and living in the basement of her aunt's house, she mastered English and excelled in school. But as her home and school life - Chinese tradition and American independence - became two increasingly disparate worlds, Mar tried desperately to navigate between them.
