“Nicholas Young slumped into the nearest seat in the hotel lobby, drained from the sixteen-hour flight from Singapore, the train ride from Heathrow Airport, and trudging through the rain-soaked streets. His cousin Astrid Leona shivered stoically next to him, all because her mother, Felicity, his dai gu Cheh— or “big aunt” in Cantonese— said it was a sin to take a taxi nine blocks and forced everyone to walk all the way from Piccadilly Tube Station.”

  1. No, I haven’t read Crazy Rich Asians. Do you recommend it?

    I just finished The Short Bus by Jonathan Mooney. The first line of the Prologue: “I have to admit, in the spirit of full disclosure, that I once harbored aspirations of becoming an after-school special.”

    The first sentence of Chapter One: “On June 3, 2003, I was standing out in front of Margo’s house with Conor, my four-year-old nephew, and my mom.”

    • I haven’t read it either yet, but I have heard wonderful things about the book and movie! I’m excited to read it!

The worst slides in Portland were in the hills that loomed above city center. Crestview Drive was at the top of Portland’s highest hill.

  3. Interested to hear what you have to say about the book you are reading, Lana. My Mom said she couldn’t finish it, which is rare for her. No new book yet, so no lines to share.
