where the writers are
A fresh, original work
Published Work: 
The Asian Review of Books

"A fresh, original work that strikes a fine balance between intimacy and restraint, and shatters several stereotypes along the way….The author's control of her subject matter is impressive, capturing perfectly the claustrophobia and obsessive passion that youthful friendships can assume, without ever rendering Ming's concerns as self-absorption…The novel's ultimate appeal, however, lies in the universality of its themes-the pain and pleasure of growing up, and the discovery of sex and the accompanying wonder and fear; few will not recall their own adolescent pangs while reading FEBRUARY FLOWERS."
