PACIFICA, Calif., Dec. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- 17-year-old high school student Wayland Fong's new book Fat Boy, Little Man is #1 in Hot New Releases on Amazon for Best Ethnic & National Biographies & Memoirs within a week of its release. The novel skyrocketed past bestsellers Down the Shore - Tales From the Beaches and Boards of New Jersey,Cooper Music and Family History and, FAME: Demi Lovato. Fat Boy, Little Man is now a best-selling novel for two weeks in a row.
So far, Fat Boy, Little Man has received two five-star reviews listed below.
"A Childhood Masterpiece"
Emotionally turbid and yet personally eloquent, Fong's reflection upon his own life and the impact that his surroundings have had not only upon his views of life and society but also of the way that human society treats one another is a must-read for anyone who's ever been a teenager....Fong cuts away the illusory perceptions that shroud the notion of growing up in Palo Alto, a town both worshipped for its technological innovation and reviled for a false perception of flashy wealth.
Fong's understanding of his own cultural background, of the societal norms that come with being an Asian-American in the 21st century, is brilliant in many respects. He delves into the thoughts and feelings of his peers with a magnifying lens, explores the mystifying traditions and behaviors of parents and their children, and unveils a profound philosophical understanding of bicultural children in America.
For those of you who may hesitate to buy and read this novel, I have two words for you: Don't hesitate."
"Despite lacking in page count, this book was satisfying and engaging, a very compelling and worldly story that will make you think. Definitely worthwhile."
Wayland Fong was born in San Francisco. He is the son of a Vietnamese refugee and Chinese immigrant. He currently attends Gunn High School in Palo Alto, California.
