The Counterfeit Family Tree of Vee Crawford-Wong

L. Tam Holland

In this funny first novel from Holland, a school assignment sends Vee Crawford-Wong on a journey of self-discovery. When his teacher assigns an essay on his family history, Vee knows he’s in trouble. His Chinese Dad and Texas-bred Mom are mysteriously close-lipped about his ancestors. So Vee makes it all up and turns in the assignment. After his lies catch up with him, Vee forges a letter from his grandparents in China, asking his father to bring their grandson to visit. But in the land of his ancestors, Vee learns that the answers he seeks are closer to home than he could have ever imagined.
