This review was originally posted on Happy Indulgence Check it out for reviews A book about an Asian teen living in Australia dealing with the traditional values of her parents and her Western classmates where was this book when I was in high schoolEven though Cloudwish isn t written by an ownvoices author I found it incredibly relatable as it highlighted things that I ve experienced as a second generation immigrant It covers the same family pressures that I went through at school parents pushing you to study needing to translate everything for them coming from a difficult past and not wanting to talk about it and their displacement from their immediate family There were so many relatable pearls of wisdom that I found throughout the book such as the Asian fail being an A study being the number 1 priority over your social life and speaking to your parents with a mixture of basic Vietnamesebroken English or in my case Chinese Cloudwish is the first book that I ve read that really captures what it s like to be from an Asian immigrant family and it was captured in a frank and honest mannerFor my fellow Australians you ll know that refugees or asylum seekers have a stigma attached to them Van Uoc s parents came to Australia by boat escaping Vietnam for a better future It was heartbreaking hearing about everything they went through in their escape from starvation dehydration loneliness and fear of the unknown Van Uoc rarely hears about her parents talking about how they made it to Australia only knowing that it was a traumatising experience with her mother suffering from PTSD over it Van Uoc s family isn t exactly living in poverty but they re not well off either and reading about their experience was really eye openingI also enjoyed the values of feminism covered in Cloudwish like how females rely on makeup to meet manufactured ideals of beauty while males don t have to do this It was refreshing to hear this covered in such a frank manner as one of the examples of valuable social commentary provided in the bookAt the heart of Cloudwish is a sweet innocent love story where Van Uoc makes a wish that her crush also the most popular guy in school would fall in love with her This is where things went downhill for me Billy sounds like a guy who I ve read about a thousand times over the popular guy in school who is forced by his parents to become a jock but starts dating a girl whom his parents won t approve of Like Van Uoc I felt suspicious of Billy as someone who starts stalking her and suddenly knowing everything there is to know about her I loved how she bravely confronted him about it but even then it still wasn t convincing enough for me I mean where is Billy s group of friends and high school buddies How does Van Uoc fit in with all of them And are we to believe that he suddenly starts noticing her in English class which begins his obsession over her It wasn t particularly believable for me loveskepticThe writing was also uite stunted written in past tense but forced into present tense It didn t flow naturally at all and felt pretty awkward in some parts which affected my enjoyment of the novel Despite Van Uoc s experiences which relatively echoed mine while growing up in Australia I also felt a disconnect with her character which I felt was partly due to the writingWhile I wasn t a fan of the romance or the writing in some parts I loved how refreshing Cloudwish was capturing my experience growing up in Australia as a second generation immigrant Covering a range of topics dealing with refugees immigrant families disconnect from your parents and feminism Cloudwish would be extremely relatable for Asian teens or those from other cultures living in a Western country

Cloudwish Read Û 7 review Cloudwish For Vân Uoc Phan fantasies fall into two categories nourishing or pointless Daydreaming about Billy Gardiner for example Pointless It always left her feeling sick as though she'd eaten too much sugarVân Uoc doesn't believ. 45 starsThis book filled me with so much giddiness and a bit of nostalgia for those magical days when you are falling in love and are about to explode with all your feelings Remember those daysAlthough I realize that if summarized the plot of Cloudwish sounds like a huge clich it worked for meVan Uoc is a shy uiet poor scholarship student at a fancy private school She has a crush on Billy Gardiner familiar to us from Widllife as Ben s semi jerk friend and one day she wishes REALLY hard that he would notice and fall in love with her Miraculously Billy immediately starts paying attention to her and actively pursues her romanticallyNow in a lesser book that would be basically the whole story But fortunately Fiona Wood is a better writer Instead of succumbing to her crush Van Uoc uestions how can it possibly happen is it some kind of elaborate joke or magic She doesn t really want to be involved with Billy either because he often IS a jerk Plus what can they possibly have in common She is a daughter of Vietnamese refugees who has to study all her waking hours and hide her aspirations of becoming an artist from her parents He is a spoiled brat living in a mansion with his doctor parents a fan of rowing and pranks And yet reader it works Even Van Uoc s love for Jane Eyre somehow rises above a clich It is a uiet book with not much of dialog It is introspective melancholy and a little artsy It is specialIf you are interested I bought this ebook here it ended up costing only about 850 in US dollarshttpwwwpanmacmillancomau978174
