Praise

Praise for Stand Up, Yumi Chung!

“With wonderful supporting characters, strong pacing, and entertaining comedy bits, debut author Kim has woven a pop song of immigrant struggle colliding with comedy and Korean barbecue.”
Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Kim has taught school, and it shows, both with the spot-ondialogue and the up-to-date social media references… This will certainly remind readers of Kelly Yang’s Front Desk (2018).”
