Beautiful Country is a book not easily forgotten. Qian Julie Wang"s story will resonate with many immigrates and native citizens alike. Raising yourself and parents is hard to do, but raising yourself and parents in a foreign land, going to school and trying to stay positively on the right path is even harder. This author does it all and comes out well rounded on the other side. Great and quick read, the first time and the 10th time read.

Maybe 3.5 stars. I wrote some notes while reading it - "Chapter One and Two, slow start, choppy"; after that, "a bit too much time spent in the bathroom - not sure of the point". I've read a lot of memoirs from everywhere over the last couple of years. I don't remember it at all, which tells me it probably wasn't very good.
