BookClub March: Bitter Melon

The Book Pick for March is Bitter Melon by Cara Chow
Released December 28, 2010
224 pages
Egmont USA, publisher.

The book is a YA, and here is the Goodread blur on the book:
Frances, a Chinese-American student at an academically competitive school in San Francisco, has always had it drilled into her to be obedient to her mother and to be a straight-A student so that she can go to Med school. But is being a doctor what she wants? It has never even occurred to Frances to question her own feelings and desires until she accidentally winds up in speech class and finds herself with a hidden talent. Does she dare to challenge the mother who has sacrificed everything for her? Set in the 1980s.
