Author May-lee Chai's latest novel is Dragon Chica, a story of a Chinese Cambodian teenager experiencing the pains of growing up in her adopted country, USA. Chai is the Californian-born author of six books, including The Girl From Purple Mountain and the eldest daughter of an Irish American mother and Shanghai born father. At her San Francisco book launch last October she had The Like Me's play live in the bookshop. Now that's what I call a book launch with a difference.
