Her father''s new delivery boy, Rory, is a welcome distraction and even though she knows that things aren''t right at home, she''s starting to feel like she could be a normal teen.But when her mother finally gets out of bed, things go from bad to worse. And as her mother''s condition worsens, Anna and her family question everything they understand about themselves and each other.The Surprising Power of a Good Dumpling is a heart-wrenching, true-to-life exploration through the often neglected crevices of culture, mental illness, and family.
