HOOK: A heartfelt and funny memoir about relationships, travel and love.
‘HIGHLIGHTS: On the surface, the concept of reading a memoir from a twenty- or thirty- something jars. Barring child stars, sports people and those who have experienced life or death situations, how much could there be to say? Yet Amy Choi’s memoir is a delight. The young Asian-Australian takes readers through the three different phases of her life, starting with her years combining work and travel around Europe, then her move to the inner suburbs of Melbourne where she cared for a troubled teenager, then finally the biggest journey of all, becoming a parent. Woven through it all are her most important relationships – with her Aussie partner and with her family, back in Hong Kong.
SUITS: Anyone after a gentle, feel good true story.
VERDICT: A real surprise package. Beautifully written, with lots of laughs and insights about cultures, values and lessons learnt. It’s a heart-warming read about appreciating what we have and being grateful for our blessings.’
