Crossing | [Andrew Xia Fukuda]

Crossing

For freshman Xing Xu, life at Slackenkill High School is a daily exercise in futility. As one of only two Asian students at the otherwise all-white school, he exists on the fringes of adolescent society, counting the days until he’s free. Only his best friend, fellow Chinese immigrant Naomi Lee, can comprehend Xing’s loneliness and frustration. When a series of mysterious abductions rattles his adopted home town, Xing’s position on the outskirts of the community puts him at an advantage. Local police are baffled by the crimes, but Xing, so easily ignored by those around him, sees and hears the things others do not.

Publisher's Summary

For freshman Xing Xu, life at Slackenkill High School is a daily exercise in futility. As one of only two Asian students at the otherwise all-white school, he exists on the fringes of adolescent society, counting the days until he’s free. Only his best friend, fellow Chinese immigrant Naomi Lee, can comprehend Xing’s loneliness and frustration. When a series of mysterious abductions rattles his adopted home town, Xing’s position on the outskirts of the community puts him at an advantage. Local police are baffled by the crimes, but Xing, so easily ignored by those around him, sees and hears the things others do not. As he moves closer to unveiling the identity of the kidnapper, a surprise revelation from his past presents an opportunity to prove his worth to his classmates - and to the lovely Naomi - once and for all. Ultimately, Xing must choose between living his life in the shadows and revealing his true self to the world, leading to a climax that will resonate long after the chilling conclusion.

    Story
    "Story with a very unhappy boy as main character."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Crossing to be better than the print version?

    I never read print version.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story moved along swiftly, and characters were interesting.
    A very surprise ending, not what I expected at all.


    Have you listened to any of Luke Daniels’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but I liked his performance for this book very much!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Bigots in Small Town America.


    Any additional comments?

    Spoiler Alert!!
    I think that the boy in this story could not get past his feelings of being looked down upon, from past slights as a child and even later. It was a very sad ending to me, to see him give up like that, the final straw for him was the girl.
