With Samson's butterfly kite flat on the ground and her own kite soaring, Sharon thought of shouting, "Okay, Samson Wong, you big-mouth. Let's see you fly your wonderful kite. Big wings will do it every time, right?"
But now that she had her chance to get even with Samson, Sharon didn't feel like fighting. She was happy just watching her kite pull into the clouds. For the first time in her life, Sharon had something Chinese that she was proud of and she was enjoying herself!
Teach Me to Fly, Skyfighter! and Other Stories offers four closely-observed accounts of growing up in contemporary Vancouver's Chinatown, highlighting the joys and frustrations of growing up in two cultures simultaneously.

"...a moving collection of stories about young Canadians."
