Summary
"My Brilliant Life interweaves the past and present of a tight-knit family, finding joy and happiness in even the most difficult times. Areum lives life to its fullest, vicariously through the stories of his parents, conversations with Little Grandpa Jang-his sixty-year-old neighbor and best friend-and through the books he reads to visit the places he would otherwise never see. For several months, Areum has been working on a manuscript, piecing together his parents' often embellished stories about his family and childhood. He hopes to present it on his birthday, as a final gift to his mom and dad; their own falling-in-love story. Through it all, Areum and his family will have you laughing and crying, for all the right reasons"-- Provided by publisher.

Summary
"Serena Singh is tired of everyone telling her what she should want-and she is ready to prove to her mother, her sister, and the aunties in her community that a woman does not need domestic bliss to have a happy life. Things are going according to plan for Serena. She is smart, confident, and just got a kick-ass new job at a top advertising firm in Washington, D.C. Even before her younger sister got married in a big, traditional wedding, Serena knew her own dreams did not include marriage or children. But with her mother constantly encouraging her to be more like her sister, Serena can not understand why her parents refuse to recognize that she and her sister want completely different experiences out of life. A new friendship with her co-worker Ainsley comes as a breath of fresh air, challenging Serena's long-held beliefs about the importance of self-reliance. She has been so focused on career success that she has let all of her hobbies and close friendships fall by the wayside. As Serena reconnects with her family and friends-including her ex-boyfriend-she learns letting people in can make her happier than standing all on her own"-- Provided by publisher.

Summary
Although distraught, Happi is also unsettled by the way people have idealized the memory of her sister who was killed after attending a social justice rally -- why do people have to be perfect in order to be missed? As a way to honor the memory, however, Happi and her other sister Genny go on a roadtrip using the original "Green Book" -- but the trip reveals secrets neither sister knew about the dead Kezi.
