The Leavers: A Novel - Lisa Ko

There is something terribly racist about adopting a Chinese child who is 12, speaks fluent Chinese and knows no other life; and changing their name to something so white it might as well be called Wonder Bread, scolding them for ever speaking Chinese and speaking about "minorities" to them as if the child isn't one. Then when said child says "um... I'm a minority", they correct the kid with "we raised you better than the others". 

 

I hate people.
