The Fold by An Na - ESSENTIAL

Na, An The Fold, 280 pgs. G. P. Putnam's Sons.

Language-PG; Sexual Content-PG; Violence-G;


Korean American, Joyce, gets the chance of a lifetime, to get the fold in her eye surgically removed. However, will the new look be worth the pain and attention?

The issue addressed in this book was very good, and it needs to be addressed. Because our society is focused on looks for the most part, it was good to see Joyce's reasoning behind her final decision. I was hoping for a little more depth in the characters but it was still a good read.
