Praise

Praise for The Many Meanings of Meilan by Andrea Wang:

★ “Wang’s resonant middle-grade debut features stunning prose and a fierce protagonist… Meilan’s journey to reclaiming her identity and finding her inner strength is remarkably compelling and relatable.”
—Booklist, starred review

★ “Wang’s middle grade debut is a ­vibrant exploration of family and identity… Meilan’s story should be on library shelves everywhere.” 
School Library Journal, starred review

“The little girl I was would have been thrilled to encounter Meilan and her many names in a book… and having found a character who embraces the complexity of being both Chinese and American, I would have been able to echo her words: “I am not alone.” 
New York Times Book Review by Jean Kwok

“Meilan discovers the specific origins of her name—and, satisfyingly, the strength to proudly stand her ground.”
Horn Book Magazine

“Underscores the importance of personal stories.”
Kirkus Reviews
