Although Asian Americans are in high demand, you do not have to be Asian American to become a living bone marrow donor. For more information on joining the Donor Registry -- regardless of your ethnic background -- visit Be the Match. All it takes is a swab of your cheek to have your DNA entered into the registry. Patients' DNA is then put through the system for potential matches. It costs nothing for you -- even if you are matched to a patient in need.

Review of "Bird" by Crystal Chan

Review of "Bird" by Crystal Chan | Mixed American Life | Scoop.it

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Pros: Great start to book! Author has excellent ability to speak from a child’s perspective, although with more complexity and grace. Great plot and great surprises all the way to the end.

Cons: None.

Summary: “Bird” by Crystal Chan is an excellent surprise of a book! I assumed that the book would be about the trials and triumphs of a mixed race girl as she learns to handle society’s response to her identity. That isn’t a bad concept for a book, but I’ve read plenty of books like that. What I received from Crystal Chan was a book that demonstrated, rather than just showed, the fluidity of identity, childhood, culture and more on par with books like “To Kill a Mockingbird”. It began with a very gripping scene and then mellowed a little as the reader gets to travel in the life of “Bird” (the main character. From there, the plot thickens as Bird has to navigate through many worlds as a lone daughter with parents of two different cultures and perspectives, as a friend to John (who turns out to be something else than what he says), and as a griever to her long-dead brother whose impression still haunts the family.
